CALIFORNIA FED PROSECUTORS UNVEIL FIRST-EVER ESPIONAGE CASE AGAINST SAUDI NATIONALS - INCLUDING SAUDI TWITTER EMPLOYEES 😳🔥 https://www.washingtonpost.com/national-security/former-twitter-employees-charged-with-spying-for-saudi-arabia-by-digging-into-the-accounts-of-kingdom-critics/2019/11/06/2e9593da-00a0-11ea-8bab-0fc209e065a8_story.html 

Just curious if the Saudi spies also looked at American nationals critical of their regime.

And yes, they were looking at dissidents/truth-tellers like the late Jamal Kashoggi.

Personal information at Twitter can involve IP addresses, location information, if you have a blue check, maybe your home address...

AND YUP - THIS TIES DIRECTLY TO BONESAW MAFIA DON MBS - DIRECTLY USING TWITTER TO TRACK CRITICS.

Twitter critical to tracking opponents as MbS rose in power in Saudi Arabia - pre-Trump.

Yes, this reminds me of why I found it concerning when Michael Goguen - Eric Greitens' number one donor in Missouri - subpoena'd my info from Twitter - and Twitter told me they would comply, even though I didn't have anything to do with the lawsuit in question.
