Twitter Suit Over Data Requests Partly Dismissed, Report Says

Twitter wants to disclose more about government data requests.

The social network wants to be able to disclose more details about what the government asks of the company.


Twitter can't say as much as it wants to about data requests it gets from the government, at least for now.


A U.S. judge on Monday partly dismissed a lawsuit filed by Twitter that argues the social media company should be able to disclose more details about information the government asks for, according to a report by Reuters.


U.S. District Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers in Oakland, California, gave Twitter the opportunity to refile its lawsuit with more details, Reuters said.


Twitter and other Silicon Valley tech giants typically release transparency reports that explain their role in government surveillance, but Twitter wants to be able to say more.


In a 2014 blog post after the lawsuit was filed, the company wrote:


"It's our belief that we are entitled under the First Amendment to respond to our users' concerns and to the statements of U.S. government officials by providing information about the scope of U.S. government surveillance -- including what types of legal process have not been received. We should be free to do this in a meaningful way, rather than in broad, inexact ranges."


Neither Twitter nor a clerk for Judge Gonzalez Rogers immediately returned requests for comment.
