Things like this are the reason I keep my nose out of the whole Wikileaks nonsense, no point in getting it caught in the door and possibly finding myself out of a job or anything like that. I wonder if any ATS members who use Twitter will be caught up in this sort of virtual dragnet?

Do you mean ATS members can also give up their Secret anonymous postings if they used TWITTER?

Three of the Twitter accounts which are of interest to prosecutors belong to Jacob Appelbaum (@ioerror), Rop Gonggrijp (@rop_g) and Birgitta Jonsdottir (@birgittaj).

Jacob Appelbaum is a well known American hacker currently employed as a developer by the Tor Project to work on anonymizing software.
Tor is used for anonymous postings, but the anonymous status is very unclear now.


Rop Gonggrijp is a Dutch hacker and founder of XS4ALL, one of the oldest Internet service providers in the Netherlands. He is known to have helped WikiLeaks prepare the release of the “Collateral Murder” video.
Gonggrijp raises a very interesting issue on his blog. “Heaven knows how many places have received similar subpoenas and just quietly submitted all they had on me,” he writes.

Birgitta Jonsdottir is a member of the Icelandic Parliament, where she seats on the Foreign Affairs Committee. She is also a member of the Icelandic delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly.
Like Gonggrijp, Jonsdottir volunteered for WikiLeaks to help prepare the release of the July 12, 2007 Baghdad airstrike video.

Haha I signed up for twitter to get points to get into RATS.. Found nothing there...Then I reopened my twitter to mess with Kayne West when he had a midol moment...which got exhausting because it was like every hour.


Well I never looked at anything on twitter wiki related that I remember. I find twitter pointless to be honest.

The information demanded by the DOJ is sweeping in scope. It includes all mailing addresses and billing information known for the user, all connection records and session times, all IP addresses used to access Twitter, all known email accounts, as well as the "means and source of payment," including banking records and credit cards. It seeks all of that information for the period beginning November 1, 2009, through the present.
