As you know, facebook and twitter, or other popular social networking forums are originated from The United States, we share what we want to say, and express what we want other people to hear on those forums. Recently, twitter rewritten its policy regarding to contents of their tweets in other countries. As you might know, different countries, or different areas have different perspective regarding to freedom of expression, and we have different limits as measurement. So, some contents might be deleted governed by the local laws, and some might be posted. Although there were many protests against such policy imposed by twitter, but I think people should understand their situation as administrators, they also need to abide by the law. I love to promote the idea of democracy and freedom of expression, but they also have to do their parts to respect the local government and their constitutional laws.

I don't think anyone should understand their position. That just tells me that they are being consumed by the government powers to be. It is a shame when even those freedoms are taken away. I believe in free speech and freedom of expression. I will post what I feel on Twitter and or FaceBook. I understand you should not be malicious or use foul language, but even that is a limitation. I think people have grown since the introduction of social media. And I think we are smarter now for it. So when one entity does not work for us anymore, we seek other avenues.

I still think the internet should be free from outside restraint, just like talking face to face should be free from outside restraint. Other nations can create their own filters; why should Twitter or other sites pander to them?
