On June 2009, millions of people in Iran used Twitter micro-blog to communicate, coordinate and document their protest against the result of presidential election in their country which they alleged has been unfair.
Last Tuesday, the government of Egypt has banned Twitter because they alleged that the micro-blog has been used by millions of people in that country to communicate, coordinate and document their protest against the 30-years old authoritarian government of President Hosni Mubarak.
And last Thursday, our Minister of Defense Purnomo told reporters that Twitter has the potential to be a non military threat to our national security.
The above shows that Twitter, which has enabled hundreds of millions of people around the world to enjoy communicating easily with each other, is considered by regimes and top officials in some countries as a threat to their authority.
