Twitter and Flickr Banned In China

The Chinese government has banned two new services the micro-blogging service and the photo-sharing network in China, this ban comes after the earlier ban on BlogSpot blogs.

These services are primarily blocked for the upcoming as the 10th anniversary of Tiananmen Square nears.

In the past China has also banned access to and blogs. Most likely the bans will be lifted once it is over, however you can still access blocked sites using proxy servers, or browse anonymously on the Internet using a software.

What do you think about the ban? Is it justified?
