After an admirable, protracted legal battle, in which Twitter argued that users own content posted to the site, the company finally folded after being threatened by a judge with a fine. Today, Twitter handed over three months' worth of tweets by Occupy Wall Street protester Malcolm Harris, who was arrested along with more than 700 others at a Brooklyn Bridge demonstration last fall. Prosecutors believe that Harris's messages may indicate that he willingly broke the law. Asked what the messages might contain, Harris, whose trial is scheduled for December, deadpanned to the AP, "Three and a half months, a lot of nonsense."
