Computer Scientists Measure the Speed of Censorship On China's Twitter | MIT Technology Review

Computer Scientists Measure the Speed of Censorship On China's Twitter | MIT Technology Review | The New Global Open Public Sphere | Scoop.it
Censorship on Weibo, China’s version of Twitter, is near real-time and relies on a workforce of over 4,000 censors who stop work during the evening news, according the first detailed analysis of censorship patterns.
Pierre Levy's insight:

The results of the study are fascinating. They say that in their data set about 5 per cent of the deletions occur within 8 minutes of posting and around 30 per cent within 0 minutes. In total, 90 per cent of deletions occur within a day, although at times deletions can occur several days later.

Nouha Belaid's curator insight, October 15, 4:52 PM
Pierre Levy said : " Mark Zuckerberg states that one of Facebook’s mission is to insure that the electoral process is fair and open in democratic countries. Google Earth and Google Street View are now used by several governments as their primary source for cadaster and other geographic or geospatial services. Twitter plays the role of an official global political, diplomatic and news service. Microsoft sells its digital infrastructure to public schools (...)

The digital revolution will foster new forms of government. We discuss political problems in a global public space taking advantage of the web and social media. The majority of humans live in interconnected cities and metropoles. Each urban node wants to be an accelerator of collective intelligence, a smart city.(...).

In the new public sphere, every netizen has the rights of an author, an editor, an artist, a curator, a critique, a messenger, a contractor and a gamer. The next platform weaves five functions together: curation, creation, communication, transaction and immersion" .
