Free Weibo offers uncensored Sina Weibo Search

Free Weibo is a new homepage that allows users to search for terms that are blocked on Sina Weibo. The site uses Sina Weibo's own data and the data of collected blocked and deleted weibo posts provided by Weiboscope. The site is blocked in China but it is just an IP block that should be remedied soon. The site's interface is only in English at the moment but it should also be available in Chinese in future.
