Twitter trends did not block #Flotilla – use #FreedomFlotilla

A lot of sites are claiming that Twitter is blocking #flotilla from the Twitter trends. But let’s be honest, “Flotilla” is a dictionary word and my guess is that the Twitter trends algorithm avoids “dictionary words”.

Instead #freedomflotilla should be used. It’s a composite and as you noticed it’s already the first on Twitter trends after less than 3000 messages:

“Gaza Flotilla” also trended. that proves that Twitter did not block “Flotilla”. We love conspiracy theories, don’t we?
