    The judge said that because Twitter users “voluntarily”
    turned over the Internet protocol addresses when they
    signed up for an account, they relinquished an
    expectation of privacy.

    “Petitioners knew or should have known that their I.P.
    information was subject to examination by Twitter, so
    they had a lessened expectation of privacy in that
    information, particularly in light of their apparent
    consent to the Twitter terms of service and privacy
    policy,” Judge O’Grady wrote.
