Twitter refuses to give HK authorities user data

Twitter Inc. said on Monday that as soon as the Hong Kong national security law came into force last week, the company stopped processing requests for user information and data from authorities in Hong Kong.

A spokeswoman confirmed that the social network will now review the national security law.

Twitter's announcement comes after Facebook said it stopped providing Chinese authorities with user information as a result of the national security law which has been heavily criticized by the United States government and its allies.
