hello occupywallst this is Erica here at occupySF. We went down to twitter headquarters this morning to try and get a formal statement that they are not in fact censoring occupywallst from trending on twitter. They only stated a position of neutrality and insisted that we formally inquire via email which we are doing now. We will let you know as soon as we receive a formal response from twitter. In loving solidarity, occupySF

Thanks guys, much love to you and hope to join you in SF. Don't expect a straight answer from Twitter, but thanks for trying - the fact that they are so evasive in and of itself means something.

The revolution will not be tweeted!

http://coupmedia.org/occupywallstreet/occupy-wall-street-official-demands-2009 (scroll way down) A lot of the comments are being censored. They still appear, but the relevant bits do not. Sometimes only an unfinished sentence is displayed. WTF?!

how about the censorship on the OWS chat room? I have heard a lot of complaints about the mod's banning people for suggesting a different opinion. It is my position that ANY type of censorship in this movement is wrong. Everyone has a stake, everyone deserves to be heard. Even the trolls. How can we change their minds if they get banned?

"AWARENESS" is an important thing for people to have. Also "WHEN YOU CHANGE THE WAY YOU LOOK AT THINGS THE THINGS YOU LOOK AT CHANGE." A Yogi said this phrase to me, and please pass it on to your fellow Americans. KEEP PREACHING THE TRUTH FOR IT SHALL SET YOU FREE.
