According to a report by Glenn Greenwald in the U.K. Guardian, the NSA has been collecting phone call records of millions of Verizon users.
Many Twitter users suspect that other telecom carriers have been providing records to NSA, too.

The sad irony of the #NSA news is that Verizon is the only one we know about. This has probably happened with all mobile carriers.

•• Obama Secretly Ordered NSA to harvest ALL data from Verizon •• http://t.co/J1IAJZZxbG

Is the NSA also collecting other forms of communication? Some Twitter users think so:

@marcambinder Wonder if the NSA intercepted the email leaking the order….before it was publicly leaked

#NSA –> private emails, Google searches, parking receipts, travel itineraries, bookstore purchases, and other digital “pocket litter.”
