Martha O’Donovan on Thursday was ordered freed on $1,000 bail. The New Jersey native will return to court on Wednesday.
O’Donovan is accused of calling the 93-year-old Mugabe a “sick man” in a tweet including an image of the president with a catheter.
O’Donovan has denied the charges as “baseless and malicious.”
Hers was the first arrest since Mugabe last month appointed a cybersecurity minister, criticized by activists as targeting social media.
