Submission + - Chinese Censors are Being Watched (economist.com) 1

Rambo Tribble writes: The Economist is reporting, (registration may be required), on two research teams, one at Harvard and another at the University of Hong Kong, who have developed software to detect what posts to Chinese social media get censored.

Chinese censors may soon have to deal with an unprecedented transparency of their actions.
