Twitter has been reported to be drastic changes in “some countries” to comply with the legalities in place, far from the freedom that has until now developed this tool. He was regarded as an effective tool for peaceful struggle in the Arab riots in 2011, as well as applied in the student protests in Chile, “outraged” at Spain, Greece and the U.S. itself, but it all seems might be history.
The same tool, Twitter, has reported that things will change drastically in “some countries” according to his blog reads. Censorship on Twitter, some have said. The idea of the owners of the microblogging network of 140 characters and is used by over 200 million people on the planet today is posed differently.
Sadly, Twitter tells us that is subject to the laws that exist in some countries and cites as an example that will not allow messages to worship or inciting to Nazism, as there are laws in Germany and France relating to the subject.
There are neo-Nazi groups and others who oppose them, but what are the criteria?
The problem generated from now on Twitter is how the millions of users expressed without fear that their comments will be removed or deleted your account. There is a fine line between freedom of expression and offense, and in Chile have been court cases in certain situations where you used Twitter have served as evidence in court (Facebook, too). There is no doubt that the world changed, but those who govern us still live in that narrow corridor giving us mentally to go through gotarios, doses of freedom, to force us to think in a way and avoid the other. Of restricting the right to choose (with the corresponding duties that entails and covers by the way) and say what we please (subject of course to Chilean law in this case and are varied).
- Is it not better express themselves and then take the consequences of our words and acts in a responsible and civilized?
- Perhaps this is a first attempt at a social networking delas become a “Virtual Big Brother” and tell us what to say, what part and what to think?
Sad and just imagine if there drain Twitter only be a matter of time, to know when the first cases. It’s simple “self – censorship” and was the spirit behind those 140 characters where were the wall of freedom, sometimes excessive, sometimes passionate, but real and sincere million.
