The battle over Occupy Wall Street protester Malcolm Harris's tweets is still going, but now he has Twitter on his side. Harris, who was arrested with hundreds of others on the Brooklyn Bridge last year, was told in April that he could not block a subpoena for his since-deleted messages, which prosecutors say show he was "well aware of the police instructions, and acted with the intent of obstructing traffic on the bridge," because they belong to the company. But Twitter is maintaining that Harris actually owns his content, so they should not be forced to turn it over. "Yesterday we filed a motion in NYC to defend a user's voice," Twitter's legal counsel tweeted yesterday. And so Big Brother must be trained to jump some hurdles, at least.
