Protester Whose Tweets Were Subpoenaed Pleads Guilty

Plans to appeal ruling that forced social media postings to be handed over

An Occupy Wall Street protester whose tweets were subpoenaed has pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct in a case that became a clash over social media privacy.

Malcolm Harris was sentenced Wednesday to six days of community service. Defense attorney Martin Stolar says Harris wanted to plead guilty so he could focus on appealing a decision by the judge to hand over his Twitter messages to the prosecution.
