"WikiLeaks is taking heat for saying it wants to publish the private information of hundreds of thousands of verified Twitter users."

USA Today: A Twitter account associated with the group said an online database would include such sensitive details as family relationships and finances. by Jessica Guynn

'"We are thinking of making an online database with all 'verified' twitter accounts & their family/job/financial/housing relationships," the WikiLeaks Task Force account tweeted Friday. The tweet has since been deleted.

'The account then tweeted: "We are looking for clear discrete (father/shareholding/party membership) variables that can be put into our AI software. Other suggestions?"'
