WeChat started cleaning up the fallacious official accounts. Many official accounts were canceled their "V" mark.
Many companies or groups have already registered their corporate accounts on WeChat to make a marketing to the Chinese market, and many of them already got a "V" mark (* It means VIP).
But on the other hand, a lot of fallacious official accounts are existing as same as Weibo. So Tencent executed a countermeasure as follows.
One day, a user receives a system notification, but this notification said as follows:
Your accounts will lose the "V" mark soon: Between your account information and its name is quite differences, so please update the information or change the account name, and after that please re-apply to get a "V" mark.
Actually, the fallacious users on WeChat is increasing day by day. So Tencent has to clean up them to keep the soundness on their service.
Similar problem also occurred on Weibo in 2010 or 2011.
And each Weibo provider has also executed many countermeasures. This problem is unavoidable thing in the development of services.
Let's keep watching the action of this as ever.
