BEIJING, Jan. 20 (Xinhua) -- A total of 133 accounts on instant message platform WeChat have been shut down for distorting Chinese history and the history of the Communist Party of China, the country's Cyberspace Administration said on Tuesday.

The accounts, such as "zhebushilishi" (meaning this is not the history), spread fabricated information and confused the public, said the administration.

They closed them after investigating tip-offs by web users.

The accounts "were against laws and regulations," "disobeyed socialist core values" and "severely disturbed the online order," which should be punished in accordance with laws, said the administration.

The administration will strengthen efforts on regulating online information and deal with tip-offs in a timely manner.

The public can report online malpractice to the 24-hour report center via hotline 12377, the website net.china.com.cn or email jubao@china.org.cn.
