DOJ wins access to WikiLeaks-related Twitter accounts

Two key issues:

[1] 2703 (d) order

[2] Jónsdóttir said in a Twitter message after the ruling that it’s now “time to apply pressure on social media to move their servers out of the U.S.” Appelbaum, who gave a speech at a hacker conference in New York last year on behalf of WikiLeaks, sent out a note saying: “Bad news is exhausting.”

Press release from Jónsdóttir lawyers posted on her blog.

#INTERNET #WEB #WIKILEAKS #politics #media #Guardian ~ The Man Who Spilled the Secrets []

The ideal role of a journalistic outlet, in Assange’s view, is to be a passive conduit for reality, or at least for slivers of reality, with as little intervention as possible—no editing, no contextualizing, no explanations, no thinking, no weighing of one person’s claims against another’s, no regard for consequences. The technology that Assange has worked on for most of his career possesses immense capabilities, and cannot be controlled by a single institution or voice. It is perhaps for this reason that WikiLeaks—ultimately replaceable by the next technologically savvy anarchist—is so disturbing to so many.
