Goodbye, Blogger (and Twitter)

Twitter and Blogger (via Google) have both decided that they will censor content depending on which country you live in -- for example, if I post about something that is taboo in, say, Egypt, my content will not be viewable in that country.  I think censorship and governmental suppression of communication is one of the worst, most horrible things imaginable.  I vehemently oppose the decisions that Google and Twitter have made and will be ceasing all further activity there.  The archives will remain, but I will no longer be posting -- my next posts will forward you to my new blog/etc., and then all further communication via Blogger and Twitter will end.

Google has quietly announced changes to its Blogger free-blogging platform that will enable the blocking of content only in countries where censorship is required. Twitter announced technology last week addressing the same topic. It said it had acquired the ability to censor tweets in the countries only where it was ordered removed, instead of on an internet-wide basis.
