“If Twitter Censors, I’ll Leave”

2 days ago famous artist and Chinese dissident Ai Weiwei ripped Twitter for permitting censorship.

But Twitter’s adjusted policy finally opens up its platform from the Great Chinese Firewall, which has been blocking Twitter and Facebook since 2009.

Twitter wants to be the default real-time worldwide breaking news platform and social network.  The timing for its global expansion is perfect.

Millions of people across the word are accessing the Internet for the first time on their mobile devices.  For many, Twitter will be the first public communication tool they use.

Twitter will make it easier for the Chinese government to spread its messages and watch over tweets at the same time.  It’ll be a requirement for citizens to use their real names.

Big Brother Twitter is just around the corner.
