Submission + - Twitter Denies Censoring WikiLeaks (

Stoobalou writes: Twitter has denied that it has censored WikiLeaks by preventing posts relating to it from from appearing in its Trends side bar.

A minor storm kicked up over the weekend as conspiracy theorists alleged that the micro-blogging site was deliberately keeping the whistle-blowing site out of the Trends ranking, which is supposed to point out hot topics to Twitter users.

Late last night Twitter's communications director Matt Graves issued a statement which attempts to explain the apparent anomaly between the amount of traffic relating to WikiLeaks and the Cablegate leaks, and the non-appearance of these topics in the Trends listing.
