2011-05-09 14:59

London - A Twitter user has set up an account claiming to expose celebrities who have obtained court-issued gag orders in Britain to protect their privacy.

The account posted six tweets and attracted nearly 35 000 followers since its first message hit the internet less than 24 hours ago.

The tweets touched off a firestorm in the British media on Monday, raising further questions about the effectiveness of the gag orders in the internet age.

One of Britain's top judges is mulling new curbs on the use of so-called super injunctions, which critics say stifle the media.

    Good for him. Celebs constantly seek publicity when it suits them (otherwise they would not be celebs). By doing so the relinquish their rights to privacy of activiites that tarnish their carefully scupted images.

      But how often isnt information libel? Imagine having all your information posted online by perhaps an angry ex or a psychologically disturbed person intent on causing you distress? Imagine applying for a job and your new boss to be sees this? It is damaging and information should be allowed to remain private if one so wishes.
