Whatsapp users in China report issues sending pictures and video, fearing censorship

Chinese Whatsapp users are fearing that the app is being blocked in the country.

On Tuesday, users found they weren’t able to send pictures or videos across. It only worked when they used a VPN server instead, possibly indicating that the issue wasn’t with Whatsapp, but with the government’s notorious firewall.

If true, the high-profile messaging app would be the latest casualty in China’s latest efforts to police online content.

Users took to Twitter to confirm the peculiar outage:

Has #China blocked #whatsapp, or is it just a glitch? Can only access thru vpn since yesterday
