Security chiefs demanding private details about Twitter users every DAY amid fears site is being used by ISIS to direct attacks

Britain’s security agencies are demanding personal information about people on Twitter every day, amid growing fears that the site is being used by ISIS fanatics to attract new recruits.

Authorities, including the police, MI5, MI6 and GCHQ, asked Twitter for private details on just under 300 occasions in the last six months alone, the website has revealed.

This was more than double the number of snooping requests made in the previous six months and means authorities were asking for information more than 10 times a week.
