Twitter Appeals Order To Reveal User Info

Twitter just filed its brief appealing a June decision by a New York criminal court judge requiring the company to give the Manhattan District Attorney detailed information on the communications of Twitter user Malcolm Harris, an Occupy Wall Street protester charged with disorderly conduct in connection with a march on the Brooklyn Bridge.

As we did before, the ACLU will file a friend-of-the-court brief in support of Twitter. You can find Twitter’s brief from today here; the ACLU’s brief will be available here later today. Last week, Harris filed his own appeal as well.
