U.S. judge allows Twitter lawsuit over surveillance to move forward

SAN FRANCISCO, July 6 (Reuters) - A U.S. judge ruled on Thursday that a lawsuit filed by Twitter Inc seeking the right to reveal the extent of U.S. government surveillance requests could move forward.

U.S. District Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers said in a written order that the U.S. government had failed to show the kind of “clear and present danger” that could possibly justify restrictions on the right of Twitter to talk about the requests it receives.
