Censorship Twitter tag # palantecomandante

Twitter censura la etiqueta #palantecomandante.

21/02/12.-Tras become the most popular expression of support for the national president, the tag # PalanteComandante runs social networking site Twitter again after President Hugo Chavez announced he will undergo surgery to remove an “injury two centimeters in diameter “detected in the same place where he was taken in mid-2011 a cancerous tumor. Despite the massive posting under this label, is that the subject does not appear in the trendic topics of the moment for our country. The trending topics Twitter, or TTs, are theoretically the most positioned in the discussion of the social network. In practice this is not so real. Recently with the manifestations of the squatters in several U.S. cities has shown that Twitter censorship issues, but has discovered a much more interesting fact: the social network administrators promote issues, in some cases admit that is promoted by Twitter and in other cases, no. Trending topics are not always the issues of what else is tuteando. This opens the possibility to determine politically and ideologically Twitter conversation in microblogging, but also that subjects deliberately censored. Paradoxically, several months ago Twitter was not itching to position any label # QDEPHugoChávez. But now that thousands and thousands of social network users are in solidarity with the commander of the Bolivarian Revolution, the label simply does not appear among the most important South American country. Administrators social network announced in January that it would begin to censor messages in some countries. Is that Venezuelans are today victims of censorship for ideological reasons?

    Don’t think it’s worth censoring that.
