Twitter To Censor Tweets On a Country by Country Basis

Twitter has announced that it will begin censoring tweets on a country by country basis. The company used countries such as France and Germany that ban pro-Nazi content as an example of why this is happening.

We haven’t yet used this ability, but if and when we are required to withhold a Tweet in a specific country, we will attempt to let the user know, and we will clearly mark when the content has been withheld.
