Twitter Inc. Sues US Government Over Surveillance Data

Twitter Inc. announced Tuesday that it was suing a number of federal government agencies as it seeks to publish their requests for surveillance and data about its users. The FBI, Attorney General’s office and Justice Department were all named in the suit, which claims Twitter’s first amendment right to free speech is being violated.
Twitter has so far been prevented from publishing a full transparency report that would disclose whether it had been forced to hand over personal details, or allow the government to use its service to collect information about people who use it. The suit was filed in federal court in northern California.
“Our ability to speak has been restricted by laws that prohibit and even criminalize a service provider like us from disclosing the exact number of national security letters (“NSLs”) and Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (“FISA”) court orders received,” Twitter said in a blog post, “even if that number is zero.”

Wow…look what was trending in Turkey:
1) If you’re a man go to Kobanê2) Don’t touch ISIS3) Let them kill the Kurds4) We have got your back ISIS, kill the Kurds
(The above are translations of each of the highlighted trends. If it’s not obvious, 1) corresponds with the first one and so on…)

I’m not sure where you’re from so would it be okay if I added this? The second one actually means “Shoot who goes out to the streets”, so seems like we’re not allowed to protest either. They’re sucking up to cops like… Oh God. People who support this government will give me a fucking brain aneurysm one day.Another thing about this is how some people seem to think ISIS are allies with Turkish people…?? Probably too heated up with their hate towards Kurds to see how ISIS massacred Turkmens not so long ago. I wanna burn this whole country up sometimes.
