Censorship comes to Twitter

Twitter has for the first time blocked an account using a new tool that allows it to bar content in individual countries, shutting out a banned German neo-Nazi group at the behest of local authorities.

Twitter spokesman Dirk Hensen told The Associated Press in an email Thursday that the account (at)hannoverticker has been blocked only in Germany, where its content is considered illegal.

I am no fan of neo-Nazis or Nazis or paleo-Nazies or grammar Nazis; however, how odd that Twitter, an American company, limits the freedom of speech (a fascist act) of a fascist group.

Just something odd about that…
