Hours ago announced site managers will have the power to censor content regional level .The intent of the microblogging network is to provide a structure according to the laws of many nations that have a very strict control on the web. That explained his decision Twitter executives, citing published in TecnoHype
As we grow internationally, in countries we have different ideas about freedom of expression . Some of our ideas are so different that we could not exist there. Elsewhere the ideas do not differ too much, but for historical or cultural, restrict certain types of content.
particular thing of this new “power” of Twitter is that the content be censored only in specific countries , being visible to users located in other parts of the world. Moreover, the social network spokesmen indicated that the blockade of the tweets will occur only when requested by “an authorized entity.”The initial reaction of users with respect to this new measure was not positive on all for the lack of information about what may be considered objectionable. Also questions were raised about what happens to those users who are temporarily in a country that denies access to specific content on Twitter. The Site Help Center published an article on the subject, but not provide data too enlightening. Hopefully the decision taken by the popular microblogging service not set a precedent dangerous for censorship on social networks. Track | Twitter | TecnoHype.
