Submission + - Twitter raises stakes in 'who owns your tweets' fight (gigaom.com)

vu1986 writes: ""Twitter announced today that it is filing an appeal in a case that is helping to define privacy rights in the social media era.

The case turns on a subpoena by which New York City wants Twitter to turn over the account information of Occupy Wall Street protestor Malcolm Harris. In a controversial decision in October, Judge Matthew Sciarrino Jr. ruled that Harris couldn’t challenge the subpoena because he didn’t have any rights in the Twitter account and therefore lacked standing.""
