This week, North Korea has begun to block access to YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and other websites in the country.

The AP, which has a bureau in North Korean capital Pyongyang, reports that the government mentioned that YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Voice of America, porn and gambling websites will be blocked "for a certain period of time".

The announcement added that anyone trying to access the sites in an "improper" way or distribute "anti-republic data" would be punished - although it did not specify how.

I believe it's real, as I've seen this news all over the place. No way to really enforce this though.

When I was visiting friends in Canada last summer, I just tunneled through my dedicated server in the US and was able to watch my shows online - completely bypassing the "this content is not available in your country" restrictions.
