New Delhi, July 15 (ANI): Chinese microbloggers are concerned about such services being suspended in the country after a series of glitches in the last two days disrupted their popular Twitter-like social-networking tools.

However, Liu Qi, vice-general manager of Sina's marketing department, said it is unnecessary for users to worry that the microblogging service will be shut down.

He said the number of users of Sina's microblogging service reached 5 million by the end of last year and the figure has been "doubling" every quarter so far this year.

Users of China's microblogging services are on edge.

A spokesman surnamed Mao from sina.com, China's biggest online portal, told China Daily that their service has been using a test version since the beginning of August.

He declined to make any further comment.etEase said the suspension of the service is due to the upgrading of features.

An employee from the public relations department of qq.com, Liu Shihui, said the "beta" logo had been on the front page of t.qq.com since April 1 when they issued their test edition to the public. (ANI)
