Twitter Censors Political Speech in the US, UK, Canada, & Australia - See who's being Silenced

Twitter is not only censoring political speech in the US, but in  the UK, too.  The following is a list of censored accounts that I have found so far.  I've noticed that the censorship status of a number of accounts is always changing and search results vary from day to day.

To know how I did my "censored account" searches you can read instructions on my blog:
http://wagetheftweddingdress.blogspot.com/2016/02/you-can-do-twitter-censorship.html.

Please note that one's censorship status can change.
