Ah, the old "do as I say, not as I do".

If the government get away with this one, we may as well all stop trying.

The most amazing thing is Dominic Cummings name has never trended on Twitter this whole time. Strange that.

His name doesn't show up though does it?

If you search for "Cummings" on Twitter then it shows up, so it isn't just the profanity filter stopping his filthy sounding name.

It doesn't have to be a twitterati coverup, but there's something weird going on.

You can search for it, but it probably is profanity filter preventing words starting with “cum” in a trending Item

Yeah, profanity filter on trending words makes sense.

Doubt it, trends are done on what people are posting it doesn’t need to be linked to a user.

But if you search for "strawberry float" or "banana split" then it doesn't suggest anything. Whereas a search for "Cummings" does.

And words starting with "cum" do trend, it's only his full name (spelt correctly) that doesn't....

You are assuming they do trend, I don’t know of a word starting cum that has.

It could also be cumming is blocked, which is a pretty large proportion of the name.

Search and trends will have different rules. You can search for anything and it will show if you have the block naughty search’s disabled. But if you allowed people turn on or off naughty trends it would cause issues I guess so I would imagine all trends are subject to profanity filtering and if I was making a list cumming would be in the list of trends I’d prevent.

So "cummimgs" can trend, "Cummings" comes up in a suggested search, but "Dominic Cummings" cannot trend?

Ok.

You're wrong with the search. As I said "Cummings" comes up with suggested results , "strawberry float" doesn't.

I've not suggested there is a big conspiracy here either.

I get result for strawberry float, gooseberry fool, etc.

My point is the logic on searches and the logic on trends will be different and it’s the trend logic that is preventing the item, Whereas the search logic allows it.

If you are easily offended you won’t search for the bad words, but you don’t choose the trends you see as it is a snapshot of what people are tweeting so can’t really have profanity options and so it would be always prevented.

Just because it is visible one way doesn’t mean it show another, the code will be different and have different logic rules.

The most likely reason is that, much like most political figures, Cummings is generally only going to be referred to by his surname name on Twitter.

Twitter currently full of government and adjacent figures saying "it's inappropriate to politicise this". We've always known that was crypto-speak for "we don't want you to talk about this" but this might be the most blatant it's ever been - clearly coordinated, desperate, almost begging insistence to not "politicise" one of the most obvious and clear-cut political scandals in recent memory.

There seems to be a lot less "ordinary" people falling for it today.

It's almost enough to make me hope people have finally seen through the bullshit. But it's the hope that kills you. :cry:
