Submission + - Thailand welcomes Twitter's censorship plans, roya (thenextweb.com)

patiwat writes: "The Thai government has called Twitter's tweet censorship move a "welcome development." Tweets may now be blocked at the request of the Thai government; the system will be used to discourage and punish lese majeste (criticism of the Thai King). The government previously declared that Facebook users worldwide "liking" a lese majeste Facebook link would also be prosecuted; over 10,000 Facebook pages have been removed and hundreds of individuals, including children and academics, have been jailed. Calls to reform the lese majeste laws have been fiercely criticized by no less than the Army Commander, whose backing is critical to the government's stability."
