Description

In 2014, Twitter filed a lawsuit claiming the US government violated its first amendment rights after it refused to let the company release more specific statistics on surveillance orders. As of now, Twitter has been given an opportunity to re-file its case, and claim that the government has not “properly classified” the statistics they want to release. According to US District Court Judge Yvonne Rogers, “The first amendment does not permit a person subject to secrecy obligations to disclose classified national security information.” http://www.politico.com/blogs/under-the-radar/2016/05/twitter-suit-over-surveillance-stats-battered-but-not-dead-222713 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit Business using http://wochit.com
