Australian Sues Twitter Over Hate Blog

If this was a case in the U.S. I would say "good luck with that" but, since this happened in Australia, this could actually get interesting.

"Twitter are a publisher, and at law anyone involved in the publication can be sued," Gibson told the newspaper. "We're suing for the re-tweets and the original tweet -- and many of the re-tweets and comments are far worse." Twitter itself, not individual users, were being sued for damages, he said.
