From: Muira McCammon

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

I would like copies of all tweets deleted by the U.S. Marine Corps' Twitter feed (@USMC) from November 2007 to the present. This would include any tweets sent out on Twitter that were deleted or kept in draft form from the Twitter account @USMC. This request also would include copies of any e-mails or correspondence regarding the deletion of these tweets. Specifically, an employee could sort and view deleted tweets on a social media management system, or could search the emails of a social media manager for emails that contain words like "Twitter" + "deleted" or "delete."

I am a doctoral student at the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania, where I research social media use by U.S. federal agencies. I have given talks on this subject at conferences held by the International Communication Association, Harvard Law School, Trinity College, the National Forum of the Ethics for Archiving the Web. I have published on this topic in a range of publications, including Slate. This FOIA request is part of research for an ongoing piece of academic research as part of my doctoral dissertation, and as such, I am requesting a fee waiver. I have submitted versions of this FOIA request to other agencies, including the Office of Government Ethics, and in the process, I have been granted this fee waiver without question.

My full academic credentials and profile are available here for your review: https://www.asc.upenn.edu/people/students/muira-mccammon

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Muira McCammon
