    Twitter shares info on gov't demands for user data



    Jul 3, 5:45 PM EDT



    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Twitter will provide biannual reports about U.S. and foreign government demands for information about its users, just as Google has been doing for the past two years.

    The first batch of data posted Monday on Twitter's website shows the online messaging service processed 849 government requests about its users during the first half of this year. Twitter says it gave officials at least part of what they wanted 63 percent of the time.................

    If you're in the US, don't make coke deals via twitter.

    If you're in China, don't share your thoughts via twitter.

    Easy.

    sounds like big brother new world order to me.

    i've been really paranoid lately about google/gmail/youtube all being together. i don't want anyone to know that i watch videos of pillow fights involving teenage girls, it could ruin my future career to run for office.

    you should be more accurate about it: twitter tried to refuse. they even went to court to not have to comply but the court decided they had to turn over the info.

    I just posted the lead directly from the Associated Press, and the link to their story at their web site AP.org.

    I didn't write the story!

    Everybody already has data on Twitter users. If you use Twitter, you're either a chick or a fruit. We all know that.

    This, although privacy offline is largely an illusion also.
