Chinese authorities have launched another crackdown on Tencent Holdings Ltds popular social messaging app WeChat, closing dozens of popular accounts, media reported on Friday, as China tightens its control of the Internet. China Business News and Hong Kongs South China Morning Post said some of the accounts closed were run by widely-read columnists like investigative journalist Luo Changping, some of which have hundreds of thousands of subscribers. The accounts were closed on Thursday, the newspapers said, the same day Premier Li Keqiang held a news conference in Beijing marking the end of the yearly meeting of parliament. Tencent, responding to the reports, said that the company was committed to combat ting the transmission of pornography, rumours and violence.
