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.

RE[5]: Hanky?

Member since:

I'm not following, you said that 'it turns out that it's not so easy to write a peer-to-peer network that doesn't rely on a central server', of which kamdelia is an example. The current user base is likely not indicitative of the capacity of this decentralized network but rather that it's not bigger due to competition from Bittorrent (and Rapidshare based upon what the RIAA/MPAA are shouting about these days). Emule is a peer 2 peer client for file transmission, but the kademlia decentralized network could obviously transmit any type of data between it's peers.

My mistake; when I said 'network', I assumed that implied a social network, not a file distribution network. (And I wish I could still edit my post to clear it up.)
