Yay, Let's Put Everyone on Twitter in Jail

The hilarious (from afar) affair of the star footballer with the reality show contestant and the ensuing gag orders against naming him technically means that "30,000 people who have broken one or other of the contested injunctions by tweeting in recent days the identities of those involved." Well, that's a good start. Can't we get the rest of them on something? Also, it's so not normal that one lass's desire to profit from her relationship is the vanguard of free speech over on Thoughtcrime Island.

More on the great British tradition of fearless free speech: Saturday's excellent Ron Jonson article in the Guardian on psychopaths, where he is told at a hearing if he reports its details, he will be imprisoned. "So I won't."

@Tulletilsynet (I wrote Ron Jonson instead of Jon Ronson not because I was careless, but because I am a psychopath.)

Information, like psychopaths, wants to be free.

Why didn't you mention his name? Afraid of being sued?
