Suing Twitter and CTB
Well, well, well I didn't think that CTB could be that stupid. 2 million people have seen the Twitter account. Over 116,000 have subscribed to it. Twitter have highlighted it.
Now CTB has decided to sue Twitter to get the account details.
All they can get is the Internet Protocol address unless someone has been stupid enough to use their normal email address.
This could be the address of an internet cafe. All of the computers in parliament on the parliamentary network have the same external IP address.
Hence it is a bit difficult to pin down the person who posted the details even if twitter divvy up the information.
What it has done, however, is to send the information global (apart from in the UK).
Something that very few people are actually bothered about has now got the maximum promotion.
I have said for some time that getting the injunction is often worse than that which it is supposed to conceal.
What it does do, however, is make this particular case sub judice and hence not subject to comment in parliament. I don't think that was the key objective, however.
