Twitter accused of suppressing DNC Wikileaks story

Twitter accused of suppressing DNC Wikileaks story

By Rudy Takala (@RudyTakala)

 

Twitter lit up Friday night with allegations that it tried to suppress news that secret-leaking website Wikileaks exposed thousands of emails obtained from the servers of the Democratic National Committee.

 

Friday afternoon, users noted, “#DNCLeaks” was trending, with more than 250,000 tweets about it on the platform. By Friday evening, it vanished completely from the site’s “trending” bar for at least 20 minutes. It returned as “#DNCLeak” after users erupted, though it was too late to quell their rage.

“Don’t normally tweet political things, but why would @twitter pull the #DNCleaks from trending at #1. Sounds like censorship to me,” said one. “Twitter is still trying to censor this trend! Now #DNCleak is trending instead of original #DNCLeaks! Keep talking guys, expose corruption,” said another.

 

This happened just days after conservative media personality Milo Yiannopoulos was banned from the site over allegations that he had harassed a black actress over her role in a new Ghostbusters movie.

 

The banning took place just minutes before Yiannopoulos was scheduled to hold a “Gays for Trump” rally at the Republican National Convention, leading to allegations that Twitter was acting out of political bias.

 

Twitter did not reply to the Washington Examiner‘s request for comment as of press time.
