> Or, alternatively, ask the 'concerned citizen' for a copy of the tweets in question, or a re-tweet.

The concerned citizen would have only given the tweets (s)he was concerned with so there would be no context. The concerned citizen might not have been contactable. The concerned citizen might have reported it anonymously.

> Disingenuous. They only needed to read the ones relevant to the issue, not his entire posting history.

And over the period of time in question he may have tweeted a couple of hundred times plus they never had access to his tweets.

> If you think he was given any chance to disagree to the time, you may also be interested in purchasing this little bridge, really cheap...

It was a voluntary interview so he could have refused it, insisted it took place at a reasonable time or insisted that legal counsel was present.
