''Tweets are disappearing on Twitter! Why?'' by Abby Olheiser of ''The Intersect'' ...

The http://www.occupy.com/ link ends with:''Once again, society finds itself at a crossroads between free expression .. with all the dirt and peril it presents, and a false sense of safety and security at the hands of censorious powers who assure us they're acting in our best interest. What initially seems a well meaning effort could, down the line, be ruinous to the most fundamental principles of civil liberty.''

Twitter was banning OWS from trending for the longest time...

At 3:36 p.m, the OWS posted this on their site:

"It appears that Twitter is censoring our updates."

Was it only a temporary problem? Has it been resolved since? I dont't know. I don't use Twitter.

I do not use twitter, so I do not know. But, I do use youtube and they are not censoring anything at all yet. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=reazEr_AIBk

Yes. The government is stopping your free speech because you're an idiot, and aren't worthy.
