Chinese internet regulator Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC) said it has deleted over 1.4 million social media posts as part of a massive crackdown on social media. Reuters reports that the regulator had launched a two-month probe into impersonation of government officials and alleged misinformation among various issues.

As per the report, a big focus of the crackdown was on "self-media" accounts operating via popular apps such as WeChat, Douyin, and Weibo. The term self-media is generally used to refer to the accounts that publish news and information but are not owned or approved by the state.
