Twitter can now remove tweets from appearing to users in a particular country, while allowing them to stay posted elsewhere in the world.The company announced the new feature in a blog post this afternoon. Before, if somebody posted content banned in one country — like pro-Nazi slogans in Germany — the only way Twitter could respond was by removing it in all countries.

It will also inform Chillingeffects.org when it gets these requests.
