Censor might be too strong a word. Let’s instead say that they want a “truth meter” on Twitter content, and they’ll decide what is truthful:

The federal government is spending nearly $1 million to create an online database that will track “misinformation” and hate speech on Twitter.

The National Science Foundation is financing the creation of a web service that will monitor “suspicious memes” and what it considers “false and misleading ideas,” with a major focus on political activity online.

The “Truthy” database, created by researchers at Indiana University, is designed to “detect political smears, astroturfing, misinformation, and other social pollution.”

How much you want to bet that anything considered Tea Party-ish, or that questions “global warming” will fall into one of those categories?

These “researchers” would then call-out (on a web portal) those whose opinions or facts they don’t agree with.
