Alibaba has been in the spotlight as it prepares its stock market listing – potentially the largest ever tech debut in the United States – particularly over its complicated web of affiliations and corporate governance. One censored post on the Weibo Corp microblog included a Chinese version of the New York Times piece, with the comment, “It’s not only Yahoo and SoftBank behind Alibaba,” Weiboscope, a University of Hong Kong project that publishes and analyses censored posts, said.
