image for WikiLeaks, Twitter, & U.S. Government; Secret Tweets Revealed Twitter birdie on the job.

In an article "Twitter Wikileaks Fiasco: Will Twitter Fold Or Fight?" on Gizmocrunch, it's stated: "The US government has requested Twitter hand in information that is "relevant and material" to the Wikileaks investigation . . ."

Gail Farrelly, investigative reporter at The Spoof, has been able to infiltrate Twitter and find the series of tweets (increasingly more urgent as time went on) from the U. S. government to Twitter management. In chronological order, here are the most important of these tweets (each is, of course, 140 characters or less):

Sent two weeks ago . . . "Kindly send us all the documents related to WikiLeaks. We appreciate your cooperation."

Sent three days later . . . "Just a brief reminder to forward us the WikiLeak documents ASAP. Thank you in advance."

Sent two days after that . . . "Please do not forget to send us the WikiLeak documents. This is of the utmost importance."

Sent a week ago . . . "Be good enough to give us those WikiLeak documents or you may be subject to a lawsuit."

Sent this morning . . . "Time is up, scum of the earth. We will be arriving at your office to bust your butt, get those WikiLeak documents, and close down your shop."

THE END (at least for now)
