SOCIAL NETWORKINGSeptember 4, 2013
Twitter attorney Alex Macgillivray has announced his plans to leave the company, The Guardian reports. Macgillivray is credited with being aggressively pro-free speech and is described as being Twitter’s “conscience-in-residence,” turning the company into “one of the fiercest defenders of user privacy in cyberspace,” the report states. Macgillivray’s departure may have industry wondering whether Twitter will “now have a less robust defence against government requests for user data and compromise its position on free speech and privacy online,” the report states.
