Hi Robert and Jillian,

Thanks you both for your input. If I understand correctly, Twitter has a
bit of a "wink wink nudge nudge <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ona-RhLfRfc>"
suggestion that if users can pretend they are in another country then their
tweets have a significantly greater likely hood of not being censored by
said country. But if Google users are now being assigned to the appropriate
ccTLD is this a new priority to institute geographic identification and are
there reasonably easy ways to circumvent?

Best,
J
