Twitter is brimming up with accusations and at the same time offering support for Paul Chambers - the man who was fined £1,000 for joking on the micro-blogging site about blowing up Doncaster airport.
The ex-accountant - who has been released off his job over the matter laid his appeal against the conviction which has been denied the previous week. In protest of the same Twitter users have been joking around claiming joke threats of their own, using the hashtag #Iamspartacus - after the famed movie line.
The theory elucidates the absurdity of Chambers' conviction by repeating his offence.
Index on Censorship News Editor Padraig Reidy has refuted the conviction and reported to the BBC: 'The verdict demonstrates that the UK's legal system has little respect for free expression, and has no understanding of how people communicate in the 21st Century.'
Meanwhile the asking for the legal status of tweets doesn't seem to be lasting away. Last week, a Conservative councilor was taken in custody after tweeting a request for the one to condemn the writer Yasmin Alibhai-Brown to death.
