A Manhattan judge ruled Monday that Twitter must hand over about three month’s worth of an Occupy Wall Street protester’s tweets, according to the Associated Press.
The AP reports that the case was filed after an Oct. 1 Occupy march on the Brooklyn Bridge, where more than 700 people were arrested for disregarding police orders and walking in the roadway. The district attorney’s office said the protester’s tweets could prove he was aware of police orders.
