London: The anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks conducted an online poll of its Twitter followers on Friday to decide whether to publish an unredacted cache of hundreds of thousands of US diplomatic cables.
The site last week released 134,000 diplomatic cables, with many showing the unprotected names of informants and other individuals who had spoken to US diplomats.
WikiLeaks said in a tweet that support for its threat to release all the remaining material from its 251,000-strong cache was running at 100 to one in favour.
The site said it was considering the move amid a row with Britain's the Guardian newspaper, one of its former media partners, which it blames for leaking the entire cache by revealing the password.
The State Department said WikiLeaks had informed the United States in advance of the document releases, but ignored US appeals that making them public could endanger lives and put US national security at risk.
