Democracy Now: Judge OKs Subpoena of OWS Protester’s Twitter Records

A Manhattan criminal court judge has ruled prosecutors can subpoena the Twitter records of an Occupy Wall Street protester. The judge also ruled the activist, Malcolm Harris, does not have legal standing to challenge a subpoena directed to Twitter. Harris was one of 700 people arrested during an Occupy-related protest on the Brooklyn Bridge in October. Harris’ lawyer, Martin Stolar, said the subpoena violates Harris’ privacy and free association rights.
