China censors tinker with Linkedin and block all mention of 'Jasmine revolution'

BEIJING: Chinese censors went on an overdrive on Friday blocking mention of US ambassador Jon Huntsman and other foreign officials in Chinese micro blogs. It continued to wipe out any mention of the 'Jasmine revolution' from the internet sites in China. 

Linkedin, the popular networking site, became inaccessible for some time but the service was available in Beijing later on Friday evening. The censors apparently lifted the blockage after Mountain View, the owners of Linkedin voiced their protest. But a discussion group involved in dialogue on a proposed revolution has vanished from the Linkedin site.
