Twitter given ‘deadline’ to disclose `Occupy` tweets or pay fine
Washington: Micro-blogging platform Twitter may face contempt of court charges for failing to comply with a two-month old order, which required the firm to turn over the tweets of an Occupy Wall Street protester.
A US judge has given Twitter until Friday to deliver the tweets or pay fines in the case of Malcolm Harris, who was arrested last October during an Occupy Wall Street protest on the Brooklyn Bridge, the New York Post reports.
Earlier, in June, the judge had ordered Twitter in a ruling that the firm must turn over three months’ of Harris’s posts.
Twitter had been seeking a stay while it appealed the decision, but an appeals court in the US ruled yesterday that the company couldn’t delay the criminal case during its appeal, the paper said.
Twitter is now in the position of having to choose between standing by Harris or disclosing sensitive revenue information in a public trial, it added.
