Big Tech’s ‘walled Gardens’ Start to Crack As Tencent Vows to Obey Beijing “Chinese internet giant Tencent Holdings said it will follow a regulatory order to unblock online links after China’s industry ministry ordered internet companies to open up their platforms to each other, signalling the demise of Big Tech’s “walled gardens”. The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) has been giving guidance to internet companies as they conduct self-rectification measures to unblock external website links, and will continue to push the companies to eventually solve the problem through different steps and phases, Zhao Zhiguo, MIIT spokesman and director general of the ministry’s Information and Communications Management Bureau, said at a press conference on Monday.”
