DoJ Seeks Wikileaks Account Info From Twitter

The Department of Justice is looking to bolster its case against the individuals responsible for the publication of massive stores of military and diplomatic documents on the website Wikileaks.

The DoJ has won a court order requiring Twitter to turn over information associated with the accounts on the microblogging service held by Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, Bradley Manning, the Army private accused of leaking the documents, and others associated with the site.

But one person caught in the dragnet happens to be a former Wikileaks associate who now serves in the Icelandic parliament, and the DoJ's efforts to go after her has drawn criticism from top officials in that country.
