Twitter users risk potential legal action

In the UK the hot topic over the last few weeks has been all about Twitter Users risking legal action if they are not careful with some of their tweets particularly with regard to tweeting allegedly inaccurate information such as the case of breaching injunctions and the Britain's Got Talent fixing allegations .

In one recent case- @fahmi_fadzil was ordered to tweet an apology 100 times when he claimed that a friend had been treated badly by her employers. The tweet below is his 100th message:

@fahmi_fadzil
100/100 I've DEFAMED Blu Inc Media & Female Magazine. My tweets on their HR Policies are untrue. I retract those words & hereby apologize

Very interesting development!
