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:
Twitchy has searched in vain for any evidence whatsoever in support of these allegations.
Our verdict: Hoax.
