Default Twitter Must Give User Info in WikiLeaks Probe

A U.S. District Court judge has upheld a ruling from last year that ordered Twitter to cough up Wikileaks account info to federal prosecutors. Prosecutors have said federal law specifically allows them to seek account information and say it is a routine investigative tool. The law in question— the Stored Communications Act — allows prosecutors to obtain certain electronic data without a search warrant or a demonstration of probable cause. Instead, the government must only show that it has a reasonable belief that the records it seeks are relevant to an ongoing criminal investigation.
