The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures,

The way they get around it is right here.

Kind of like how your trash is considered in the public space. As soon as you use a company to host your data, legally a lot of the time they are now the owners of that data and they can decide what to do with it.

I'm not saying it's right, but it's within the amendment wording. They rake everything in the public space and companies who have no stake in your affairs for the data you gave to them for evidence of probable cause in order to get a warrant.

True but aggregate data collection still violates the 4th amendment, and do we not own our TCP/UDP data packets as they are produced by our computers under our decision. I know social media TOS basically fucks you.
