Thailand Is First Government To Welcome Twitter’s New Censorship Policy

Thailand applauded Twitter’s new stance on censorship, which will give governments the right to ask the network to remove certain tweets.

The new policy – decried by free speech advocate as censorship and defended by pragmatists as a necessary part of international business operations – would see certain tweets and/or accounts withheld from citizens of an entire country, but remain visible to the rest of the global network.
