Professor Andrew Ferguson is quoted in the New York Post about Twitter challenging a court order to turn over the tweets of a user being prosecuted as part of an Occupy Wall Street march last year.

"This is a better business decision for Twitter than a long-term legal argument,” said Prof. Ferguson. "But what is novel and important is that Twitter has stood up and fought for a customer’s expectation of privacy.”
