China Blocks Twitter and others before Tiananmen Anniversary.

So what does Tiananmen mean in the Trending Topics? This stems from China and its communist approach to controlling the billions of people living in the country.  In 1989, students & other groups led a massive protest leading to military bring tanks in! as seen above.  So this discussion on Twitter arrives as a Trending Topic; mixed with opinions of civil liberties and rights around the world.  

Chinese censors blocked access to Twitter and other popular online services on Tuesday afternoon, two days before the twentieth anniversary of the crackdown on democracy protests in Tiananmen Square which cost hundreds of lives.
