Douyu pulled down from app stores in China

Tencent-backed live-streaming platform Douyu has been removed from a number of Chinese smartphone app stores. The Wuhan-based answer to Twitch was not available on Apple’s China app store on Wednesday and a search of Xiaomi and Huawei smartphone stores only showed a basic version with limited functionality.

The app’s removal comes as Weibo, China’s answer to Twitter, announced it would be stopping any new users registering for its services under 14 years’ old. The moves follow a crackdown by Beijing on content it deems inappropriate – which includes “pornography” and “illegal” online content.
