Social Networks are the Matrix

First, this post about Second Life being used for business meetings and research labs. Now this story about the Supreme Court delivering official documents via Twitter. If you were the last hold out that social networks were just a fad, read on:

Court serves injunction via Twitter

Updated on 01 October 2009

By Benjamin Cohen

In a landmark decision, the high court allows an injunction to be served via Twitter in a case that could set a precedent for dealing with anonymous bloggers. Benjamin Cohen reports.

The case surrounds a Twitter account @blaneysblarney, which purports to be that of the well-known right-wing lawyer Donal Blaney, who blogs under the name BlaneysBarney.

The account, which was registered on 17 September, even features a photograph of the real Donal Blaney and posts rather provocative tweets including –

“So the Iranians were lying all along. Time for the RAF to start practicing bunker bombing…”

“Now Obama, who the eurofederasts [sic] love, is happy to leave us to the mercy of the mad mullahs…”

//

Mr Blaney became aware of the Twitter account, which has 79 “followers”, a week ago, and last night he decided to take legal action.

He told Channel4 News: “I know that is quicker to say contact Twitter and say someone is impersonating me and they’ll take the account down.

“But that’s not good enough any more. People want to know who’s doing this and to force them to stop.

“Too many people abuse the anonymity on the internet, and it’s right that they’re stopped from doing so.”

This morning the high court issued an injunction requiring the user to (i) stop posting messages on Twitter, (ii) preserve the accounts (i.e. not delete it), and (iii) contact Mr Blaney personally. (more)
