Twitter

Social networking site Twitter’s policy on banning an account came into force in January 2012. According to that policy, Twitter can block content in specific countries if the tweets violate local laws. However, Twitter said on Thursday that it had blocked access of an organization known as “Besseres Hannover” (it means “Better Hannover”), a group of neo-Nazi organization at the request of the German Government. This is the first time Twitter has implemented its local censorship policy. And hence, no German users can see the tweets on @hannoverticker account. But other users beyond Germany can see the tweets on that banned account.

German police sent a letter to Twitter mentioning the account be closed. The letter reads, “It is disbanded, its assets are seized and all its accounts in social networks have to be closed immediately.”
