Ruling Gives DOJ Access To WikiLeaks-Linked Twitter Accounts

A federal judge in Virginia issued a ruling today that allows the US Department of Justice to access the Twitter accounts and associated data like the email addresses of principal WikiLeaks members, including Julian Assange.

The measure comes after the DOJ subpoena'd those members back in January in a probe to determine whether or not they broke the law in their involvement with the organisation. The group's lawyers have already decided to appeal, so we'll have to wait and see just how much heat the WikiLeaks higher-ups will be in should an investigation truly begin. [CNET]
