Random Pagan Verse:
“All children and young people, although they may not be able to understand the more exalted heavens of our horoscope, may always be taught to rule their lives in accordance with the Law. No efforts should be spared to bring them to this emancipation. The misery caused to children by the operation of the law of the slave-gods was, one may say, the primum mobile of Our first aspiration to overthrow the Old Law.”

Twitter opens office in Hong Kong

Twitter has opened a Hong Kong office, its first in the Greater China region, the company whose micro-blogging services are blocked on the mainland said on Tuesday.

The office, to be headed by Twitter executive Peter Greenberger, will allow the San Francisco-based company to tap China for advertising revenue, the company said, even if internet users on the mainland cannot see those ads.

Twitter collected $479m in fourth-quarter revenue from advertisers who paid to inject their ads, known as "promoted tweets", into Twitter users' timelines. The company has 288 million users worldwide.

China's censors have blocked Twitter's micro-blog since 2009 along with US social media platform Facebook and Google's YouTube.

Beijing officials say this censorship is necessary to maintain social order.

Twitter was credited with helping fuel the popular uprisings in the Middle East and has maintained a stridently pro-free speech stance to the extent that it has attracted international criticism for failing to police sexist and racist abuse.

Despite the ban, Chinese companies including Huawei Technologies and the state-owned Xinhua news agency use Twitter's micro-blogging service to reach a global audience.

In 2014, the company downplayed suggestions it would seek to enter China, citing political hurdles.
