    Lawsuits like this should be tossed out and the lawyers who brought it fined for wasting the courts time. If you don't like twitter having access to your messages, don't use them. All administrators have access to all data on their systems, that is how computers work.

    What a terrible headline.

    It's interesting to see how this plays out because XenForo functions in similar ways now with the link proxy system and also (possibly) with the link -> title conversion in 1.5. Admins might want to keep an eye on what happens with it because if manipulating a link in a "private" message is an issue, a large portion of the internet is guilty.

    This just seems like someone is trying to make a quick buck from Twitter due to the already vague and shaky laws surrounding things such as the internet/social media that can't keep up with the ever evolving world wide web.

    More importantly it will be neat to see how Twitter defends itself, normally Facebook is on the spotlight for this kind of stuff but, I hope twitter isn't a push over either.

    Did Twitter ever claim that DM's are "private" ? I noticed a lot of organizations are refraining from using the word "private"

    I always assume anything "private" sent over the internet can and will be ready by someone unknown to me at some point in time.

    Everyone should assume this IMHO.
