Judge issues order in Occupy Boston Twitter investigation but seals it for 10 days

Whatever it is Suffolk Superior Court Judge Carol Ball ruled is on a subpoena issued by the Suffolk County District Attorney's office to Twitter for information about certain tweets related to Occupy Boston and possibly to the release of information about Boston police officers.

One of the Twitter users whose handle is referenced in the subpoena is seeking to quash it; he posted a copy after California-based Twitter notified him. Ball stayed her order to let both the ACLU of Massachusetts, which is representing him, and the DA's office to appeal her ruling.
