Twitter with less censorship

Twitterwitter recently added the option of withholding content in specific countries, while keeping that content available for the rest of the world. There has been a lot of outrage about what is allegedly censorship.

Now please give the folks at Twitter a break, in reality there is going to be less censorship:
“Until now, the only way we could take account of those countries’ limits was to remove content globally.” Now deletes will be limited to countries that “for historical or cultural reasons, restrict certain types of content, such as France or Germany, which ban pro-Nazi content.”
Now what’s wrong with that?
