TechCrunch: Twitter will tell users if content was blocked to comply with local laws or legal demands

TechCrunch: Twitter will tell users if content was blocked to comply with local laws or legal demands. “Twitter will now display messages to inform users if blocked tweets were withheld to comply with local laws or court orders, which it calls Country Withheld Content (CWC). The public already has information about CWC through notices sent directly to affected accounts, Lumen, a database of legal requests for the removal of online content, and Twitter’s own biannual transparency reports. The new interstitials, however, will give Twitter users information as soon as they try to access blocked tweets or accounts.”
