“The open exchange of information can have a positive global impact … almost every country in the world agrees that freedom of expression is a human right. Many countries also agree that freedom of expression carries with it responsibilities and has limits.”Earlier when a tweets was removed, it was unavailable globally but now onward the tweets will be removed in specific countries only making it view able to others. If a Tweet is withheld, user will be notified to their account . Twitter had partner with Chilling Effects, where the decision of twitter will be publicly available on the censored contents.
Good or Bad?
Twitter is rising globally and it need to reside in the countries where there is restrictions so have foot-hold in those countries they are taking the decisions. Twitter is playing good to grow it's business. This decision is helpful in expanding the growth of twitter but not for the users. The censoring of tweets suppress the freedom of speech online. It make possibly that the users will not able to reach where they want to, example considered the last year 'Revolution in Egypt'. Will it be possible with this censorship? no!
Twitter is making tough decision but want user to get in flow with twitter. What you believe this good to censor tweets like this?
