Bad news for Tencent: Chinese companies steer employees away from Weixin or WeChat

So wait

"This app is insecure" and "ban on Tencent updating apps" is logically inconsistent.

We know this is all some sort of retaliation against Tencent and Pony Ma for not toeing the Xi party line in some way or another, but shouldn't they at least come up with something that makes sense to their citizens watching from the inside?

The fact the government doesn't believe they have to come up with a better lie shows they either believe their citizens are so brainwashed they will believe anything they're told, or worse they're now under such a tight grip it doesn't matter if they see the obvious lies the government is telling them.
