2012 - The Year in Review - Twitter and Privacy

By December 30, 2012

Follow me on:

The big prize at the Privacy Awards this year may very well go to Twitter for their stand on digital privacy, even though they have been pretty well forced into the legal battles they are now fighting.  New York Judge Matthew Sciarrino forced the company to produce records for a case against an Occupy organizer, even though the social media mogul says quite plainly that information belongs to their client, not to them.

Sciarrino's rulings force the company to appeal them, or face catastrophic legal fees in the future whenever any Twitter user is taken into court because of something sent over their account.

Unfortunately, legal does not always necessarily mean logical - but... well, there you are.
