Since WikiLeaks’ addresses were provided to Twitter, a Judge ruled that it was no longer private since the “information has already been disclosed.” On January 4, 2012 US District Judge Liam O’Grady ordered Twitter to produce WikiLeaks records as reported by Bloomberg:

Who do you follow on Twitter?

On Jan. 1, I found that these Twitter names had hordes of followers: @ladygaga had 17,554,645, @Starbucks had 1,927,255, and @noahkravitz had 24,273 which anyone on Twitter can view. Please read my January column in eCommerce Times about Twitter followers in the PhoneDog v. Kravitz case entitled “New Legal Challenge – Who Owns Followers on Twitter?”

Clearly Twitter information appears to not be so private or secret.
