Twitter Surrenders Occupy Protester's Tweets

Twitter, facing a contempt of court charge and a fine, finally gave up that Occupy Wall Street protester's data so it can be used against him in court.

Twitter had faced a Friday deadline to comply with the subpoena or face contempt and a substantial fine. In court on Friday, the company's lawyers asked one last time for the judge to stay his order but he refused and they turned over the documents to him.
