When Twitter was ordered to turn over tweets belonging to one of the OWS protesters, they initially refused. But a Federal judge used a dirty tactic on them, threatening to demand financial data, essentially forcing them to comply. Why was that so compelling? Twitter is a privately held company (no stock or stockholders) and is not required to divulge finances the way publicly held companies are.
Remember what I’ve said about the government being in direct opposition to those who elected it? This is a prime example of that.
