Legal I'm (was?) a Twitter user. This past week I found it utterly weird that none of the words #wikileaks, #cablegate, #cables, #Assange were actually "trending". I even tweeted about this 5 days ago. Today, my fears of secret censorship seem to be coming true. It appears that Twitter is censoring all these words, so they don't appear in the (much-used) Twitter "trends" list. Update 1: A Twitter staffer replied to the blog post saying that their trending algorithm doesn't always result to the most popular terms. Update 2: More investigation about what might be going on.

We already have seen how USA is trying to "seed democracy" in Iraq with their apache helicpoter in 2007. We know how they act before against the truth from WikiLeaks. Are there still people, that trust US government is doing anything right with respect to any laws? WAKE UP!
