|Legal pressure has forced Twitter to handed over messages sent by an Occupy Wall Street protester. |
Twitter spent months resisting the call to release the messages, saying to do so would undermine privacy laws.
If the messages were not handed over on 14 September, Twitter would have been in contempt of court and faced substantial fines.
The Manhattan district attorney's office wanted the tweets to help its case against protester Malcolm Harris.
