#TwitterCensorship Blocks #OccupyWallStreet from Top Trending Topic Twice
On at least two occasions, Saturday September 17th and again on Thursday night, Twitter blocked #OccupyWallStreet from being featured as a top trending topic on their homepage. On both occasions, #OccupyWallStreet tweets were coming in more frequently than other top trending topics that they were featuring on their homepage.
This is blatant political censorship on the part of a company that has recently received a $400 million investment from JP Morgan Chase.
We demand a statement from Twitter on this act of politically motivated censorship.
Will they block #OccupyWallStreet from trending again tomorrow when actions throughout the country will once again flare up?
We shall see. Will have more on this topic soon…
Phi Beta Iota: Google is known to have sold out to the dark side, but also to have proven relatively useless. Facebook and Twitter have obviously made their own accommodation. This is one reason we support OpenBTS, OpenMoko, and moving as quickly as possible toward non-interruptible wireless mesh service for the public.
