Britons ARE being spied on: Using phone records and online data gleaned by US gov’t

Britain’s secret eavesdropping agency has been spying on UK citizens after cutting a backroom deal with US agents to share personal data mined from the world’s biggest internet companies, according to leaked documents.

Twitter, which is known for zealously protecting its users’ privacy, is conspicuous in its absence from the list of Internet companies involved in the data-mining program.

While the NSA is by far the biggest surveillance agency in the world, it regularly shares its work its British counterparts through a shady agreement that allows them to share classified information, bypassing official legal channels.
