Twitter Inc (Twitter) and Facebook Inc (Facebook) say they have suspended social media accounts, those operated from mainland China in order to weaken protests in Hong Kong.

According to Twitter, the company has suspended 936 accounts and operations are suspected of being carried out by some in China.

The company said all of these accounts were believed to be part of a larger network, of which about 200,000 were suspended before they could operate more actively.

Meanwhile, Facebook said they had removed accounts and sites from smaller operating networks, after receiving information from Twitter.

Facebook said the investigation found that the account operated by several individuals linked to the Chinese Government.

Hong Kong’s ongoing protests are one of the biggest challenges President Xi Jinping has to face since taking office in 2012.
