As a result of recent subpoenas issued to Twitter by NY District Attorneys and prosecutors, several Occupy Wall Street protestors have re-evaluated their decision to fight charges against them.

Prosecutors claim many tweets by protesters exhibit an “intent to break the law,” leading some of the arrested to accept plea agreements.
