RussiaToday: Tweet it Over: New York judge orders Twitter to hand over OWS messages

In a flashpoint for online privacy and free speech in the United States, micro-blogging platform Twitter has been ordered by a court to release tweets relating to an Occupy Brooklyn Bridge march last year, which resulted in more than 700 arrests.

New York’s district attorney ruled that Twitter should hand over three months’ worth of Occupy activists’ messages connected with an OWS protester arrested last year.

The ruling comes in the case of Malcolm Harris, an active Twitter user, who has been charged with disorderly conduct during an Occupy protest last year.
