Earlier today, we reported that Microsoft’s Bing search engine is no longer available in China. Based on the report from FT, we mentioned in our article that Bing has been blocked based on Chinese government order. Bloomberg is now reporting that Bing was blocked in China due to an accidental technical error rather than an attempt at censorship. The technical error is now resolved and Bing is now accessible for users in China.
