What you think about twitter censorship plan?

As Twitter introduces a new procedure for self-censorship, is this the end of freedom of expression on the internet?

    Jan 22 2013: Could you describe the plan, Chetan, so that each person who might want to respond to you doesn't have to look up the background?

        Thanks for your link , I read it....though sorry to say I have very low confidence with any media Moguls....so would be better if could reach out Twitter's Own media releases regarding the same.

        However the point is , yes due this policy , person's expression will be limited by the country law , is not that also happening in our real world, what I can say in the street of my country , can't be said in the street of Saudi Arabia....

        Moreover , Twitter as a company has to protect it's interest as well....in such case what you suggest ?
