Twitter rejects charges from Irish anti-abortion campaigners
Company temporarily restricted some activists’ messages recently while carrying out investigation

Twitter has rejected charges from anti-abortion referendum campaigners in Ireland that it has restricted the audience they can reach, but it warns that it will not allow debate to be manipulated on its site.
Peadar Tóibín, the Sinn Féin TD and anti-abortion campaigner, complained that a dozen Right2Life Twitter users have complained their messages have been restricted by the company.
