Twitter Taking Free Speech Away From Innocent … Nazis?

Bin Laden did WWII.Because of what happened in the first half of the 20th Century, Germany has some laws against Nazi activity. While such laws would never be tolerated in the United States, because of our precious freedoms to be full-time jerks whenever we want, Twitter is now censoring these littlest Nazis within German borders while letting their important tweets appear in the rest of the world. "Never want to withhold content; good to have tools to do it narrowly and transparently," Twitter's robot lawyer said. It's a first for the global service that lets people type silly little things instead of doing work.

This is surprising considering that most posts on Twitter should be considered hate speech. (I know I hate it.)

In America it's okay to shout fire in a crowded newsroom.

Adolph. Not a bad name! But you needed to go and ruin it for beer and newspaper barons, Hitler.

I mean, along with the other stuff. Also bad form.

@osmium : I'm more concerned with whether the Germans can watch Master of the Flying Guillotine on DVD because no human being should be denied an experience that joyful and life-affirming.
