Weibo is the Chinese incumbent microblogging platform.
Some profiles or posts are available on Internet Archive:
- for http://t.sina.com.cn/[IA•Wcite•.today•MemWeb] (before domain changes in May 2011), and
- for http://weibo.com[IA•Wcite•.today•MemWeb] (before April 2014).
Webpages fetched after April 2014 are mostly broken on IA, since most crawls on IA being redirected to a page on passport.weibo.com, titled "Sina Visitor System". This behaviour applied unless User-Agent is set to "spider"/"googlebot"/etc, so specifying a User-Agent in robots.txt[IA•Wcite•.today•MemWeb] is required for crawling. IA's crawls and ArchiveBot (if no searchbot UA specified) would not work on this site.
