Twitter Feeds Stopped by Media

Twitter feeds have been blasting away with dozens of updates every single minute. These were used by many of the networks to show streaming news on their news channels on TV. 

Twitter users were asking people to stop sending updates and there were rumours that the Government and/or the Military had asked the twitter channel #mumbai be shut down.

However there is no official record of this and Dina Mehta clarified this on twitter. She reports that the news channels have stopped carrying twitter feeds on their TV broadcasts.

    American political leader Lyndon LaRouche has just warned on his web site that British Intelligence was behind the Mumbai terrorist attack.

    Mumbai comes during the last days of the Bush Administration, Lyndon LaRouche said today, in which we are expecting the very worst to strike globally. And the British are also in heat right now. Therefore, you are looking for the very worst at this time. And, because of the Pakistan ISI (Inter-Services Intelligence)/British MI-6 involvement, Mumbai could not have happened at this time, unless the British were involved in it.
