Dthief writes with this from Pennsylvania’s ABC27 News: “The state attorney general’s office has issued a subpoena threatening officials of the social networking service Twitter with arrest unless they reveal the names of two bloggers who have been critical of Attorney General Tom Corbett and his public corruption investigation. Vic Walczak of the American Civil Liberties Union told Pittsburgh’s WTAE-TV that the court action ‘raises grave concerns about abuse of the grand jury process to retaliate against political critics and opponents.’ He said Americans ‘have a right to criticize government officials and to do so anonymously.’”
