    Britain's High Court ordered its first injunction via Twitter yesterday in an attempt to reach an anonymous Twitter user. I don’t know about you guys but this seems rather odd. I guess it is better than Twitter coughing up his user info though.

    this is a horrible idea

    governments actually using the interwebs for notificaiton would lead to incredible rates of fraud. Just like the 'IRS' notice that is making the rounds now.
