President Obama is meeting with some of the biggest names in tech, including the heads of Bay Area based Google, Apple and Twitter.

The Washington, D.C. meeting comes just a day after a federal judge said he believes the National Security Agency's collection of telephone records is "probably" unconstitutional.

The tech industry has criticized some of the most high-profile NSA snooping programs. The White House says the president and tech leaders will be addressing the issue.

They are also talking about cyber security and the rollout problems with the Obamacare website.
