Twitter Blocks Neo-Nazis Following German Police Request

Twitter finally banned a neo-nazis account in Germany by request of local law enforcement. The account belongs to the group called Besseres Hannover. Because of criminal behavior the group has been watched since 2008 and this is the first time Twitter has blocked an account ever. This kind of action was put under fire by free speech advocates but Twitter says it’s a necessary act due to police actions.

My own interests only concern about sharing information dealing with the sharing of ideas and knowing how to use social media in a responsible way. It’s crazy to think that Twitter can shut down any account but still important to realize that people can’t just put anything on the internet. It’s a place to share thoughts and opinions not to use social media as a criminal outlet.
