If you follow Wikileaks on Twitter, the DOJ is after you

From @Wikileaks just a while ago:


"WARNING all 637,000 @wikileaks followers are a target of US gov subpoena against Twitter, under section 2. B http://is.gd/koZIA"


I wasn't following them, but after hearing about this, I started following them, cuz I'm one of those silly assholes who doesn't like government intimidation tactics like this one.  I encourage others to do the same.

@ThinkAtheist is following them. I also agree that I don't like government intimidation tactics. It is a sad day in history that people should be afraid of the gov. The sad reality of all of this is that Obama said from day one that there needs to be more open transparency. I have really come to the conclusion that the only thing that the dems and repubs differentiate is how they are spelled. I support Wiki Leaks 100% The people that say that the founder of Wiki Leaks should be shot and killed just do not have the real facts of what really is going on. That is the biggest tragedy of it all. Really at the end of the day, this show me that the the government does not want a informed public. They want a public that is dulled down and also to do the work of 3 people with little pay but still give them a little hope of this magical "dream".

I quite literally just made a Twitter to follow wikileaks, this kind of shit is starting to get of my nerves. I swear I'm starting to feel like a conspiracy nut with all the shit going on these days.

What am I about to do Daniel?

I'm not too worried about that, personally just not very trusting of links that I have no clue about. A 1.4g download claiming to be something doesn't sound like a good idea.

That's a good policy, Matt. If I don't know exactly what it is by someone I kinda trust who's downloaded it, I don't want to do it. I'm down with the government pounding on my door. Fuck them. Let them come after me. I need some stripes on my radical uniform.

I was following them on Twitter before, not going to stop, for the same reasons as above.

I just downloaded it.

From home. On my laptop. No proxy.

If the govmit comes and steals me away, guess we'll all know why. :) 

Also going to to go log back into my twitter account for the first time in...forever. 

Just to follow wiki.


I fucking hate needless authority.

My civil passive-aggressive protest has  limits.

I can't remember my twitter name or password. 

Oh well. 

I think the 'Insurance' thingie says enough.
