Twitter to sue USA for surveillance

Twitter to sue USA for surveillance
The aftermath of the whistleblower scandal by Edward Snowden's revelations of NSA's mass surveillance of the network's users, now triggers a very unusual lawsuit against the US Justice Department.

The case comes after months of discussions between Twitter and American authorities about a so called transparency report, which Twitter wants to publish.

In this report, Twitter wants to write in detail about how often, for example, the NSA is approaching them requiring user data. Such information is currently secret and in reality Twitter can't even tell that such communications takes place at all.

Both Apple, Google and several other Internet companies publish such transparency reports, and they are in Google's case, quite extensive documents.

It records how often governments and authorities consults, with requirements to obtain user data, censure or removal of information, and much more.

In the proceedings for the case against NSA, which broke out last summer, several companies have tried to get permission to tell more about NSA's demands for information, but it has so far been unsuccessful. Therefore, Twitter now take action and wants to sue the Justice Department of the United States.

Twitter argues that the United States Constitution ensures the company's freedom of speech to talk about these things.
