Twitter Blocked By Great Firewall of China

Seems the Chinese government is not a fan of Twitter. Access to the social media site has been blocked in China, according to ASSME.

Free speech is not an option in China and the blocking of Twitter is another instance of this. One wonders what impact this will have on the user numbers globally. Over a third of the world's population lives in China and they represent a major growth area for the internet.

One of these days someone will create a Wireless Free broadcasting platform, similar to RadioFree America used to send radio into Communist countries and possibly an influence on the fall of the Soviet and Eastern Bloc system.

Might have to discuss the topic with Daron Babin of Webamster Radio when I see him at Affiliate Convention in Denver.
