U.S. Demanding WikiLeaks Account Info From Twitter…

   …and that is according to WikiLeaks so you can take it for what it’s worth.

    WikiLeaks claimed on Saturday that U.S. henchman had gone to Twitter in order to get information regarding WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and other supporters. The U.S. is wanting to get their hands on emails,contacts,and other info concerning Assange. Of course, the U.S. came calling on Twitter with the required sealed court order in hand.


"If the Iranian government was to attempt to coercively obtain this information from journalists and activists of foreign nations, human rights groups around the world would speak out," Assange said in statement.

A copy of the court order, dated Dec. 14 and posted to, said that the information sought was "relevant to an ongoing criminal investigation" and ordered Twitter not to disclose its existence to Assange or any of the others targeted.

The order was unsealed "thanks to legal action by Twitter," WikiLeaks said in its statement. Twitter has declined comment on the claim, saying only that its policy is to notify its users, where possible, of government requests for information.

  So what, the United States government has nothing better to do other than waste  more American tax dollars on unnecessary bullshit?
