Twitter must give a court three months' worth of an Occupy Wall Street protester's tweets, a New York judge said in a ruling released Monday.
Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Matthew Sciarrino said he would review all the material he ordered turned over and would provide only "relevant portions" to prosecutors. Twitter Inc. called the ruling disappointing. "We continue to have a steadfast commitment to our users and their rights," the company said in a statement.
The case against Malcolm Harris began as one of about 700 disorderly conduct prosecutions stemming from an Occupy march Oct. 1 on the Brooklyn Bridge. It has become a closely watched legal tussle over law enforcement agencies' access to material posted on social networks.
