Twitter Hands Over Occupy Tweets to New York Judge | Common Dreams

The tweets in question were posted by Occupy protestor, Malcolm Harris, one of many arrested during a mass protest on the Brooklyn Bridge in October 2011. Harris has been on trial following charges from the protest.

Harris argues that police intentionally led protesters onto the bridge’s roadway and proceeded to arrest him for obstructing traffic. Manhattan district attorney’s office believe they can use the tweets as evidence that Harris intentionally broke the law.

A New York Judge ruled on Tuesday that Twitter must produce Harris’ Tweets by today or face fines. The company’s lawyers made one final plea in court Friday, but the judge refused.

Twitter had originally argued that releasing Harris’ posts would violate fourth amendment privacy rights.
