Malcolm Harris: Twitter surrenders Occupy Wall Street’s protester tweetsNew York: Micro-blogging website Twitter has finally handed over tweets from Malcolm Harris, an Occupy Wall Street protester, to an Occupy Wall Street protester months after trying not to give the posts to the criminal court.

The site gave up the tweets to Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Matthew Sciarrino but they will remain under seal until another appeal by Harris is argued next week, Reuters reported.

In October 2011, police arrested Harris along with hundred others during a mass protest on the Brooklyn Bridge.

The Manhattan district attorney’s office wants the tweets, which are no longer available online, to try to undermine Harris’ argument that police officers appeared to lead protesters on to the bridge’s roadway only to arrest them for obstructing traffic.

Twitter had faced a Friday deadline to comply with the subpoena or face contempt and a substantial fine

Meanwhile, the Occupy movement prepares to mark its one-year anniversary next week on September 17.
