Wechat have national security personnels stationed there running codes so that sensitive contents will be blocked out.It's the perfect setup for the government tyrants, because they have the "front" of a business to do the dirty work of censoring and restricting speech.
Just like what they have in China.
Google and Facebook didn’t want to comply and left the Chinese market.
It is not about a front. But black and white rules and regulation and what to comply and how to comply.
There is also greater wariness coming from Europe against American tech companies having too much power influencing their domestic politics. Every country soon will set up their own regulatory bodies on digital platforms.
