Twitter opens Hong Kong office despite China ban

Twitter has opened an office in Hong Kong, despite the social network being banned in mainland China, meaning its content and ads won’t reach most of the country’s population.

Facebook, which is also banned in China, has employed a similar method of increasing revenue in the country: instead of targeting social media users, it targets businesses.

Despite the ban, Chinese companies including Huawei and the state-owned Xinhua news agency use Twitter’s microblogging service to reach a global audience.
