"How do you say Facebook and Twitter in French? You don't -- at least, not if you are on radio or television, where French officials have banned any mention of them unless they are specifically part of the story. The internet sites have fallen foul of a 1992 decree that outlaws the advertising or promotion of private business on programmes." (06/07/11)
