      The interesting part is that 2 of the users aren't even US citizens. Makes me wonder exactly what the government hopes to do with their data. Or better, I hope Twitter accidentally deletes the data while making copies for the US investigators...happens all the time when dash cam videos from police cars involving brutality cases miraculously disappears...

    The justification of Judge Theresa Buchanan []:

    Buchanan also dismissed the argument that the order violated the Fourth Amendment to the US Constitution, which protects people against "unreasonable" searches.

    When the trio relayed information to Twitter, they gave up "any reasonable expectation of privacy," she said.

    So, one have to ask: why such a fuss with privacy? Judge says you don't have right to it on Internet!!! fscking hell, where's the world heading?

So... did you ever wonder, do garbagemen take showers before they go to work?
