Interesting to see that the High Court judges could not agree on whether Paul Chambers’ tweet should be taken seriously or not, hence would fall within the law’s remit of “menacing electronic communication”.
The tweet was “Crap! Robin Hood airport is closed. You’ve got a week to get your shit together, otherwise I’m blowing the airport sky high!!”
and sent after heavy snow falls closed various airports and trains stations etc… The frustration can be understood…even though the tweet reveals the main issue of social media: people don’t realise the consequence of their action (writing words) in a public sphere
