Twitter Warns UK Over Snooping Bill's Legal Perils

Twitter has said that government plans to increase the UK intelligence services' communications surveillance capabilities could cause it to breach the privacy rights of individuals based elsewhere in the world.

The micro-blogging company said that complying with the requirements set out in the government's draft Communications Data Bill could place the firm in a "legally untenable position".
