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.
