Tweets may be Libelous
A serious issue needs to be addressed that affects many people every day on the internet: slander and libel. You should know that anything you say can be found and regardless if something is true, you may still be guilty of libel or slander.
A professor of law at North Carolina explained why twitter can be so dangerous, “Statements on Twitter can form the basis of a defamation lawsuit just as much as any form of publication. It’s just sometimes with new technology, it takes a little longer for people to start to take what they read seriously enough — and more importantly for lawyers — to pay enough attention to start to bring lawsuits based on it.
Just remember to think before you tweet and do your due diligence. It may save you thousands of dollars and you’ll be much better off in the long run.
