  1. While this is not particularly good news, people will still find a way to get round it.

  2. This is awful. So awful I can’t even think of anything more to say!

  3. Apparently it’s ridiculously easy to get around, you just need to change the country setting to Worldwide.

    THIS SUCKS!!!!! Twitter is becomoing a supporter for homophobes. I just wonder if they’ll be soon be blocking tweets in the USA whose states are totally against gays and lesbians.

    GET WITH THE PROGRAM TWITTER. THIS IS THE 21st CNTURY!!!!!!!!!

    1. And good news too, better then having homosexuals over-take everything.

  5. ahh nothing a simple VLAN cant bypass, just link to a country that isnt censored, its funnily enough how people get around region only online tv stuff like watching iplayer from another country for instance, not actually illegal either heh (least not yet)

  6. Disgusting. Uncensored access is what makes Twitter relevant today, without that, there’s no reason to bother logging on to it.

  7. Like any propaganda tool it can be used for good or bad. Too bad the governments have final say over which one it is. Recently it was discovered that Christians are masquerading as gays and infiltrating gay groups to get information that could be used against them, be on the look out for them, some of them have been doing for a long time.

  8. …very worrying…
