Watch as WikiLeaks accuses Leigh of branding Bradley Manning a "source," sparking a war of words that eventually includes @UKfriendsofBM, @davidmhouse, and others. Feel free to edit for completeness.

#Telegraph launches spiteful and inaccurate attack on Guardian #wikileaksbook, published tomorrow http://t.co/eC2K16J #wikileaks
Luke Harding @lukeharding1968
First extract from Guardian's new #wikileaksbook. Look out for "Harry Harrison": 6ft2ins tall and "87 per cent slut" http://t.co/A69zOPH
David Leigh @davidleighx

James Ball @jamesrbuk
First extracts from the Guardian's #wikileaksbook are out. I appear briefly, telling a silly story about Julian Assange http://is.gd/izKw0W
WikiLeaks @wikileaks
Guardian names Manning as source. Sarah Tisdall mark 2. The slimiest media organization in the UK. http://is.gd/GT0tzF
WikiLeaks @wikileaks
It should be noted, that as far as we know, neither we, nor the Guardian have any inside knowledge as to who the sources are.

Hold on a second, where did Bradley Manning admit to passing on secrets to WikiLeaks? Worried by this Guardian outing http://bit.ly/gAbyon
David Leigh @davidleighx
@wikileaks absolute pack of lies against the Guardian. Manning not our source. Who says "free Bradley" on their logo?# Wikileaks does
Luke Harding @lukeharding1968
@wikileaks does the Bradley on wikileaks logo refer to Bradley Manning? or another Bradley?
skdadl @skdadl
@davidleigh3 David, David, David - why does logic escape you? I support Bradley Manning, and he's not my source. cc @wikileaks
Sunny Hundal @sunny_hundal
@davidleigh3 even if Manning is not Guardian source David, what's the justification for pointing out that Manning leaked docs?
David Leigh @davidleighx
@wikileaks Absolute lie from #wikileaks. Manning not our source. What is it Assange fears in Guardian book that makes him lie? Disappointing
James Ball @jamesrbuk
@sunny_hundal @davidleigh3 @lukeharding1968 Manning is assumed and alleged source in all accounts - no-one has any inside info
James Ball @jamesrbuk
@sunny_hundal @davidleigh3 @lukeharding1968 so regardless of view of helpfulness of 'naming', it doesn't change any realities on ground
skdadl @skdadl
@davidleigh3 Could be he doesn't like @ByNickDavies ' claim to have the whole police file when that's not true. Y'think? cc @wikileaks
David Leigh @davidleighx
#Assange puts "Free Bradley" on #wikileaks logo, thus naming his source. #Guardian book does no such thing gu.com/p/2mnxe/tw
Sunny Hundal @sunny_hundal
@jamesrbuk @davidleigh3 @lukeharding1968 but the Telegraph article says book explicitly details how Manning passed on docs? Evidence, no?
skdadl @skdadl
@davidleigh3 David, are you throwing an illogical tantrum because you're genuinely upset, or are you just hyping your book? cc @WikiLeaks
James Ball @jamesrbuk
@sunny_hundal It's a rehashed version of the Wired account from months ago. Same as included in every other book (cc @davidleigh3)
James Ball @jamesrbuk
@sunny_hundal Whatever you think of including it, it's not new. The @wikileaks Tisdall tweet is more about the ongoing feud(cc @davidleigh3)
David Leigh @davidleighx
@wikileaks All the #guardian book says abt bradley manning is already in public domain. Of course we don't name a "source". Why Lie, Julian?
@JLLLOW
Wow, the @Guardian has just cranked up the backstabby bitchiness to 11 now, innit? #wikileaks #Assange
Sunny Hundal @sunny_hundal
@jamesrbuk I see. rather worried it enforces the same narrative, that Bradley Manning definitely guilty of leaking
