Tweets are Public Screams: DNews Nuggets
Tweets are Public Screams: A judge in New York has ruled that tweets are public, just as if you “scream out a window,” reports USA Today. The judge ruled that Twitter has to hand over tweets and account details for an Occuply Wall Street protestor arrested in October.
“There is no proprietary interest in your tweets, which you have now gifted to the world. This is not the same as a private e-mail, a private direct message, a private chat, or any of the other readily available ways to have a private conversation via the Internet that now exist,” reads part of the ruling by Criminal Court Judge Matthew Sciarrino Jr., according to USA Today.
