14. As far as I know, all Twitter posts are completely public
And I agree, if you're telling the world, any government has the right to listen (they shouldn't have the right to demand to know who is the real person behind a Twitter name, of course, unless it's necessary to prevent an imminent crime).

I have only used Twitter for a way to check with others if DU is available for them, or to inform them that it is back up. For that, a brief public message like Twitter seems ideal. I'm not convinced it's the brilliant future of communication; it's one tool of limited use.
