OWS protestor doesn't own his tweets, judge rules

http://j.mp/ID36Rk  (Paid Content)

    In a candid ruling, a New York judge said a protester can't stop
    prosecutors from searching his Twitter account because he doesn't own
    the tweets in the first place.  Judge Matthew Sciarrino Jr. cited a
    "widely-believed" but "mistaken" notion about online privacy rights
    and said that search and seizure protections don't apply because we
    "do not have a 'physical' home on the Internet."
