No, Twitter isn’t censoring Dorner-related tweets

The article in The Next Web linked in the tweet above is more than a year old and has nothing to do with former LAPD officer Christopher Dorner. Nonetheless, the @Occupythemob tweet has been re-tweeted more than 1,600 times and a lot of Tweeters are repeating the accusation that Twitter has been censoring Dorner-related tweets.

At least one Twitter users accused Twitter of going one step further, censoring tweets complaining about censorship:

The tweet in question is right here, and it comes up first when searching “Dorner censoring twitter.”

Twitchy has searched in vain for any evidence whatsoever in support of these allegations.

Our verdict: Hoax.
