A new Twitter policy which goes into effect today allows the social network "to reactively withhold content from users in a specific country," so that Twitter can further expand globally and "enter countries that have different ideas about the contours of freedom of expression."

The Twitter blog post announcing this news was titled "Tweets still must flow." And yes they must, but apparently in some countries, only if they're censored?

(...) These anti-SOPA protests represent a shift in how politics are played out, and I’m not sure it’s a step forward. To begin with, the biggest actors in the SOPA/PIPA protests today are corporations, which are changing their sites and asking their users to take action. Second, the protests, which are taking place almost entirely on the web, leave out chunks of our society that aren’t connected to the web or don’t rely on those sites, making those people oblivious to the issues involved.

(...) Considering that most of the tech companies that are in protest generate their money based on user interaction.I would say in almost all cases they will be aligned with the users perspective. Facebook, google, etc have basically become the collective bargaining group(read:union leaders) of free speech on the internet. They are essentially in the business of facilitating the trading of ideas.
