Twitter, FB etc. do they fall under the right for “Free Speech”? 09122012

Should these companies be protected like we protect newspapers and their writers?

Twitter has been asked to release account information and data to the Government, involving prosecution of a Occupy Wall Street protester.  The current debate is utilizing the 4th Amendment which guards our privacy against unreasonable search and seizures.  But, does the account owners First Amendment right of Free Speech also get trampled in this case.  This entry is not going to get deep on this issue, we just wanted to see what others think and feel.  I know that tweeting is often blowing off steam, but when or should law enforcement be able to request this type of information. 

We look forward to seeing comments from other readers for more information about the Twitter order to release infirmation check out this article on
