Yesterday, Twitter said it was willing to remove tweets on a country-by-country basis when there are local restrictions against content in the tweets, and when a country requires the tweets to be taken down. That's why these Twitter users are up in arms.
The company said the new plan promotes freedom of expression, transparency, and accountability because even though these tweets may be unavailable to people in a given country--they'll stay available to the rest of the world. Until now, the only way Twitter could operate in these countries was to remove offending tweets internationally.
Still, the fact that Twitter is removing tweets at all is causing many people to cry censorship. - CNET
