WASHINGTON (AP) — A coalition of the nation’s leading technology firms is urging changes in the government’s spying programs.
Top executives from Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, Facebook, AOL, LinkedIn and Twitter published a joint statement and sent a letter Tuesday to President Barack Obama and members of Congress. The coalition urges changes that would include a government agreement not to collect bulk data from Internet communications.
