Facebook and Twitter Banned from French Airwaves

The CSA has banned the mention of Facebook and Twitter on the grounds that to pronounce these words constitutes "product placement" advertising for private firms. (h/t Arun)

Since these 2 entities are/were a primary catalyst for change in the arab world, I can see why France fears their promotion. Can you imagine if, for example, French women start banding together through Facebook or Twitter? Or how about politicos having to face the public through these open and unfiltered blogs? Mon dieu!
