"Three WikiLeaks backers asked a federal judge in Virginia to block the U.S. from reviewing their Twitter account data, arguing that the government’s demands violate their constitutional rights. U.S. Magistrate Judge Theresa Buchanan in Alexandria, during an hour-long hearing today, considered a challenge to her order requiring Twitter to give investigators data on subscribers 'associated with WikiLeaks,' including its leader, Julian Assange, and Bradley Manning, a U.S. soldier charged with leaking classified information."
