Twitter Breaks Rank, Threatens to Fight NSA Gag Orders

Good on them:

Twitter threatened to launch a legal battle with the Obama administration on Thursday over gag orders that prevent it from disclosing information about surveillance of its users.

The statement puts Twitter at odds with other technology giants including Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, and Facebook, who all struck a deal with the government last month to drop their lawsuits in exchange for looser secrecy rules.

Bad on Google, Microsoft, Yahoo and Facebook. Fuck them for laying down when they should fight for their users.
