And this is what Twitter said in a recent blog post:
Our goal is to instantly connect people everywhere to what is most meaningful to them. For this to happen, freedom of expression is essential. Some Tweets may facilitate positive change in a repressed country, some make us laugh, some make us think, some downright anger a vast majority of users. We don’t always agree with the things people choose to tweet, but we keep the information flowing irrespective of any view we may have about the content.
I rest my case.
PS. It has been long believed that the people involved in media industry have never liked common people having a say. Radio, Newspapers and Television become a one way medium long time ago. You can only consume data. Internet (and thus Twitter) has changed it all for our generation. We get the power to express ourselves. A small blog can take on a big giant. People have the power finally. Though network neutrality is being seen as the latest attack on the freedom we have to communicate on the web.
