#TwitterCensorship Blocks #OccupyWallStreet from Top Trending Topic Twice | AmpedStatus

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…
