Twitter was blocked in Turkey after Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdoğan objected to tweets critical of his government. That is what app blocking really looks like.

Twitter also has been blocked It was blocked in Egypt in 2011, Pakistan in 2012, and China in 2009.

Network neutrality, by way of comparison, concerns only the preservation of "best effort only" levels of Internet access by consumer customers.

Network interconnection, or Internet domain interconnections, which some want to drag into the network neutrality framework, also is not "blocking" of lawful apps.
