And may I say, duh.  It's not remarkable that Internet #social companies obey court orders. The thing that seems to surprise average citizens is that those court orders are so easy to get -- and for so many different purposes (including folks who just don't like you) -- and that there's often little remediation or even notice available, even in the most supposedly-civilized nations.
