From a New York Times report on Twitter’s agreeing to block German readers from reading tweets posted by a neo-Nazi account:

‘Twitter employees are not combing through the hundreds of millions of messages posted each day searching for offensive material, but are responding only to government requests, beholden to free-expression laws in the countries in which it operates. That makes the company potentially subject to manipulation by authoritarian governments, rights advocates say.’

What do you call laws that censor expression? “Free-expression laws.”
