Judge: twitter must hand over my data

Yesterday a judge in Virginia decided that Twitter must hand over all data it has on me, Jacob Appelbaum and Birgitta Jónsdottir. The consequences of this decision for me are extremely limited: there’s not a whole lot you can learn from records that Twitter has on me that you can’t learn from reading my blog. There are bigger principles at stake though, and this is not a good ruling for online privacy. The EFF – they represent Birgitta in this case – has a statement on their website that says it all and links to further documents if you want to read up.

Dear media people: going on past experience there may well be 30 to 50 of you trying to reach me today. Please accept my apologies if I won’t pick up the phone or if I just point you to this statement if you do manage to reach me.
