It's no coincidence crackdowns across the board are happening everywhere, governmentS want to control information just as they always have. Internet tools are a huge threat as they've all witnessed in Egypt, OWS etc.

It's continuing demise will be wrapped in the usual "Protection of or from (children, intellectual property, terrorism, the boogeyman, criminals, tribalism etc).

It won't stop, it will be relentless and little by little you'll wake up in a few years and have a shadow of your "free" speech left and nothing on the internet will be without complete government controls.

We've already lost serious rights and freedoms here in the U.S., which means they were nothing more than privileges to be taken away according to the corrupt government. Curbing the masses from communicating easily is essential for effective government and corporate control of the sheeple.

It's bad for those who wanna start revolutions in their repressed countries like the Arab Spring but I can't help feeling kinda "meh" about it.

Never saw the point in Twitter, always saw it as a public text messaging service and a total fad.

Life goes on without facebook, twitter and the internet. GO OUTSIDE and PLAY. Reconnect with earth. The internet has become like television: a big waste of time. We can't change anything in the Middle East...but we can change things in our OWN backyards.

How incredibly small minded. To dismiss the most powerful communication tool in all of human history to "go outside and play" and only worry about your own little world is very telling.

Ahem. If this country is so worried about child pornography and child molestation, why don't we censor the state department for using classification to cover up their role in covering up the bachi bazi boy scandals? And why don't we listen to our troops when they say that that Afghan National forces are kidnapping and raping little boys they are taking at road blocks?

Censoring child porn off twitter seems counterproductive. If someone's into it and tweets about it, you can catch them. That's not what this is about- it's about how certain countries with certain crazy laws want to take a company like eBay or Twitter to court IF they don't censor them. They leave them alone until they get a lot of money, then they go after them and try to take it. They went after eBay for 3.8 billion dollars.

I wish it could fall on these countries to censor their own people, but they try to censor the world.

Child porn is nothing but an excuse. Hitler documented that the protection of children was one of the most potent thumbscrews in existence for controlling people. Terrorism is another one. The common element is always an appeal to fear.

Yep, starred.
I agree with you 100%.
Find anything that the vast majority hates and sees as an appropriate vilian, then use it for all it's worth.
Disgusting the manipulation, really.
