from the Wall Street Journal:
A novel issue in Ms. Yassin’s case is how the law should treat retweets, a feature that allows Twitter users to repost other people’s tweets. That is, should someone who retweets an offensive post be held liable for the contents of the original tweet? In a court filing last month, Ms. Yassin’s lawyer, Ian Lewis, said his client was “merely reporting someone else’s statements.”
Should you be inclined to retweet
something that is indiscreet,
the chances are prime
that you’ve done a crime,
and have to await the hot seat.
