The fallout from the revelations leaked by National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden continues. Two e-mail providers have shuttered their services, citing U.S. law enforcement agencies practices of demanding access to users’ data.

On Thursday Lavabit, an e-mail provider used by Snowden and popular because of its privacy standards, announced that it was immediately ending service. Ladar Levison, who runs the service with more than 350,000 users, noted that he reached his decision after much soul-searching about what he believes are crimes being committed against the American people using today’s surveillance measures.
