Twitter has announced in a blog post that they now have the technical capability to block tweets based on region, while keeping the tweets live in other parts of the world. This means that countries like Germany can ban pro-Nazi tweets, while we here in the United States still get to see them (yay?). The other side of this coin is that countries like Syria and China (eventually) will be able to censor tweets on a larger scale.
