TWITTER’S role in the super injunction saga has come under intense scrutiny after several accounts sprung up which appear to name and give details about the alleged affairs of those who have taken them out.
Yesterday one Twitter feed, which has attracted more than 50,000 followers, gave details on six supposed super-injunction cases. The feed was still active last night with the company taking no apparent action.
Socialite Jemima Khan denied on her own Twitter feed that she has taken out a super injunction to prevent “intimate” photos of her and Jeremy Clarkson leaking out.
A super injunction can make it illegal to publish details about a person, or even acknowledge the injunction exists. While posting details on Twitter is technically illegal it would be very difficult to prosecute.
