Twitter will start to "reactively withhold content from users in a specific country" as part of the company's process of expanding its global business.
In its blog post, Twitter explained that its international growth meant entering countries "that have different ideas about the contours of freedom of expression", citing France or Germany which ban pro-Nazi content as examples.
According Al Jazeera, censoring is necessary to avoid defying the laws of a nation where its employees reside and therefore avoiding their potential arrest.
