Sina's 新浪的 new gTLDs .微博 & .weibo are now live


There is some dated info from their application at https://icannwiki.com/.微博

These TLDs have been a long long time coming.

Sina is huge in China so I hope these gTLDs will be used effectively and have a positive effect on global usage of new gTLDs.

Anyone have any current info on Sina's plans for these TLDs now that they are live. When will they be launching fully functional .微博 address? If anyone sees any announcements (in chinese is good) from Sina or indeed anyone about Sina's new gTLDs now being live, can you please send me links. Links to their plans for these gTLDs would be good as well.

A few minutes ago I tested http://nic.微博 and http://nic.xn--9krt00a on weibo and neither linkify.
