  1. Twitter resists subpoena to release user's data without warrant

    A judge erred when ruling a person does not own content he posts to the service, Twitter said.


    On-line privacy is under 'systematic attack' from governments + agencies (some say rogue agencies) ..... so it is good to see Twitter at least 'appears' to be trying to stand up with its user in defense of his rights.

    Agreed. Although maybe they are doing this out of not wanting to be countersued if the defendant wins the case in question.

    If CISPA passes, Twitter won't have to worry about being countersued, and they'll probably freely give out that information.
