Judge: Twitter Must Turn Over Occupy Wall Street Protester's Tweets

Twitter has been ordered to give a New York City judge almost three months' worth of an Occupy Wall Street protester's tweets despite the company's efforts to fight prosecutors' demand for the messages.

Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Matthew Sciarrino Jr. also ruled Monday that prosecutors would need a search warrant -- not just a subpoena -- to get the final day's worth of tweets they seek from Malcolm Harris. That's because of a timeframe set by federal law.

No one forced anyone to use

No one forced anyone to use Twitter. When you post anything online it may at some point be used as evidence against you. Kids today are trained by their peers to use the Internet for anything and everything personal. This is just stupid on their part.

Just Stupid?

What do you think YOU just did posting here?

skippy

I'm telling people who post

I'm telling people who post their entire life's story online that they may be under a misperception that their information is private.

What are you trying to do, exactly?

Dumb

Dummy

Retired proper. New Grandma loving life and a teacher/nurse by former trade

at least twitter pretended to fight the good fight

before caving. Kudos to twitter. Did anybody else notice how hard twitter was choved down our throat on the tele? Or was it jus me

This shouldn't

Be happening. We will not be able to use the internet as a form of communication to rally the troops. We will have to go back to using low tech methods. Might I suggest cheap disposable cellphones. Not mentioning our plans online. using code words and symbols. The fascist police state zionist supporting thugs will stop at nothing to bust us.

I wish people would open their eyes to the only Constitutional scholar in the race! And as a doctor, I see no one more capable of fixing the Insurance company scheme,too!
