Social network Twitter has said it wants to work more closely with UK policy makers, according to the BBC.

Twitter, which has over 10 million UK users, is recruiting a UK public policy manager, the BBC said on Tuesday.

The micro-blogging service has attracted parliamentary scrutiny over injunctions, and gave evidence to a parliamentary committee which in March called for self-censorship by search engines and social networks.

Twitter UK general manager Tony Wang said the company will "protect and defend" its users' "voice", but declined to comment on government plans to be able to intercept all web communications under the Communications Capabilities Development Programme (CCDP).
