Is Twitter Handing Over Private Data to the Feds?
A source tells us that a loose-lipped Twitter staffer recently dished at a lunch that the company has allowed a federal agency to set up a tap to monitor a "firehose" of its data, including private details on users, presumably including private "direct messages," IP addresses and account information. The Feds — the NSA would seem the most logical agency —then analyze the data to mine for information they deem of interest.
Twitter, it is said, is one of only a handful of internet companies large enough for the Feds to bother setting up such monitoring.
