Global Times Reports Instagram Blocked, Sina Weibo Censors "Instagram"

At 8:00 am on September 30, 2014, the state sponsored Global Times reported:
“Instagram, the photo-sharing service owned by Facebook Inc (FB.O), has been blocked in Chinese mainland.”
These screenshots were taken shortly after the Global Times article was published, and show that Sina Weibo was restricting search results for “Instagram” to a limited subset of verified accounts it had designated as “Top Picks.”
