Twitter is reminding the Ugandan people that censorship is immoral.
“Sorry, Ugandans, you’re not allowed to silence other people’s Twitter accounts, especially in the run-up to an election. You just can’t do that. Now, we recognize you don’t have a Bill of Rights or a centuries-old tradition of self-government out there in Uganda, so you might not have known this, as we do here. But to restate: Censoring voters’ social media accounts is hugely harmful. Online censorship violates ‘basic human rights.’ In fact, it’s an attack on democracy itself. Got that, Ugandans? Now we understand you’re a primitive, developing nation, so we’ll give you a pass this time, but don’t forget it. Censorship bad! #OpenInternet”
