Twitter, in questi giorni di protesta in Egitto, afferma sul blog ufficiale dell’azienda:
Our goal is to instantly connect people everywhere to what is most meaningful to them. For this to happen, freedom of expression is essential. Some Tweets may facilitate positive change in a repressed country, some make us laugh, some make us think, some downright anger a vast majority of users. We don’t always agree with the things people choose to tweet, but we keep the information flowing irrespective of any view we may have about the content.
The open exchange of information can have a positive global impact. This is both a practical and ethical belief. On a practical level, we simply cannot review all one hundred million-plus Tweets created and subsequently delivered every day. From an ethical perspective, almost every country in the world agrees that freedom of expression is a human right. Many countries also agree that freedom of expression carries with it responsibilities and has limits.
Ora quel che sta succedendo in Egitto è molto grave, da tutti i punti di vista. Ma nello stesso tempo non riesco a non pensare anche alla telefonata di Masi a Santoro, l’altra sera in trasmissione.
