twitter_diablo_feds The Electronic Frontier Foundation obtained documents detailing how various federal agencies are using popular social networking sites to gather information for their investigations.

The Justice Department was even good enough to outline these strategies in a PowerPoint presentation which the watchdog group posted (PDF doc) and summarized:

“The presentation notes that Facebook was “often cooperative with emergency requests” while complaining about Twitter’s short data retention policies and refusal to preserve data without legal process.”

I wonder how Diablo Cody feels about the feds using a screengrab of her account for their presentation?
