Twitter seems to be doing this my marking as spam and blocking it, rather than putting a fact-checking warning, which seems rather underhanded
Apparently Twitter were blocking it on the basis the article contained "hacked materials" but are not doing that any more. Not that I think they had a way to verify any of this...
And now a hash tag about the news article they tried to block is in the top 5 trending topics in Twitter's sidebar. Kind of backfired there...
@sjb I bet back in the day when Snowden documents came to light (which was technically not hacked materials, more like stolen xd), nobody at twitter said it:
"We need to block these, guys!"
