SHMG writes “Micro-blogging site Twitter is developing technology that will prevent government censorship, after Iran and China moved to censor its users. Speaking at the World Economic Forum, Twitter CEO and co-founder Evan Williams said the company was working on ‘hacks’ to stop any blocking by foreign governments. ‘We are partially blocked in China and other places and we were in Iran as well,’ he said. ‘The most productive way to fight that is not by trying to engage China and other governments whose very being is against what we are about.’”
