President Barack Obama met with more than a dozen tech company bosses Tuesday; one week after industry leaders asked the government to change its spying practices.
It includes representatives of Google, Apple, Twitter, Yahoo, Netflix and Facebook. The White House meeting comes a day after a federal judge said the government’s collection of domestic phone records is unconstitutional.
Such practices were brought to light by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden, who leaked the classified information. The closed-door meeting was also expected to include talks about how the tech sector can help the government avoid IT debacles like the www.healthcare.gov website rollout.
