Anyone want to guess another avenue the US federal government has for getting information on what Americans are doing?  They take advantage of the different laws in different countries that the large ISPs are subject to in order to accomplish indirectly what they cannot do directly.  Anyone want to guess how long it will take for the NSA to request, and the French to provide, all of the juicy bits the French get from Twitter under the rubric of this French court order?

O - while I'd normally agree with you, at the moment I doubt and chance of co-operation between the French and the NSA. You don't know just how pissed off they are about the whole spying thing.

They are now, but as they say, time heals all wounds, particularly if the US agrees to quietly pimp some project the French are interested in.
