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.

Clinton labeling Assange has a "high tech Terrorist" opens the door on her policies and that of the Obama"War is Peace"Administration

This tweet was censored by the Twitter... is this a violation of first amendment rights? censoring of this kind is disturbing on many levels.
