Foursquare Gets Blocked In China

Foursquare has been blocked by the Chinese government as confirmed by tweets from people in the Asian country.  Why has it been blocked?  There is speculation that it has something to do with people “checking in” to Tian’anmen Square, a plaza in Beijin known for protests that took place in 1976 and 1989.
