Twitter obliged with a court subpoena for three months’ worth of tweets from Occupy Wall Street protestor Malcolm Harris on Friday.
The tweets will remain under seal until a decision is reached at an Article 78 appeal hearing on Sept. 21.
The Manhattan District Attorney’s office says Twitter, as a company, owns all user-generated content. With the subpoena order, Twitter had to surrender Harris’s tweets by Friday’s deadline to avoid facing contempt charges and substantial fines.
Harris was one of the 700 Occupy Wall Street protestors arrested on the Brooklyn Bridge on Oct. 1, 2011, when bout 2,000 protestors attempted to cross the bridge after marching uptown from the group’s home base at Zuccotti Park.
