Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Censorship of Twitter has generally occurred in countries with a history of Internet censorship. Twitter is banned in China; however, many Chinese people use it anyway. In 2010 Cheng Jianping was sentenced to 1 year in a labor camp for a sarcastic post on Twitter. Twitter was inaccessible in Egypt on 25 January 2011 during the 2011 Egyptian protests. Some news reports blamed the government of Egypt for blocking it, and Vodafone Egypt, Egypt's largest mobile network operator, said it wasn't their action; however, Twitter's news releases did not state who the company believes instituted the block.show more
