Oh no! Twitter censorship


Oh no! Reuters, CBS, and other outlets are reporting that Twitter is going to start censoring tweets in certain countries:

"Twitter announced Thursday that it would begin restricting Tweets in certain countries, marking a policy shift for the social media platform that helped propel the popular uprisings recently sweeping across the Middle East."

Please click here to sign an open letter and urge Twitter to reverse its decision to start censoring:

And this quote is just tragic, as Twitter tries to rationlize away restrictions on speech:

"As we continue to grow internationally, we will enter countries that have different ideas about the contours of freedom of expression," Twitter wrote in a blog post published Thursday.

>From the Middle East, to Occupy, to SOPA and PIPA, the importance of open platforms like Twitter couldn't be more clear than it is today.

Will you help fight back, by signing an open letter to Twitter and asking them to reverse course? Just click here:
