Filtering Questions

One of my grad students went to her local public library to work on her Social Networking assignment recently. She sent me an email asking if it were normal for a public library to filter social media platforms. She could not access Twitter from a public library computer. She had to be placed on a "special" computer with a time limit of 30 minutes for her work. She ended up heading to a local Starbucks and working on the assignment instead.

This came as a surprise to me. The public library is now filtering access to Twitter?

Has anyone else had this experience or is it an anomaly?
