Twitter Boycott Planned To Protest Twitter's Censorship Plan

Twitterers have a message: Tomorrow, turn off the tweets.

Users like us of the social media site are planning a Twitter boycott to protest the company's new ability to censor tweets on a country-by-country basis.

Twitter announced Thursday that it can now block tweets, as well as individual accounts, from appearing to users in specific countries, and that it may use the feature to comply with governments' request to censor information. Before, Twitter could only block tweets and accounts globally.

Some users are calling on fellow Twitterers to silence their tweets on January 28 as a way of expressing their opposition to Twitter's plan. They are using the hashtag #TwitterBlackout #TwitterCensored to organize the boycott, and tweets tagged with the hashtag are rolling in at a clip of about 12 per minute.

We got to trend now it's time to trend to protest. Use to tweet with the hash easy.
