Dangerous tweets: Arrested, fined in 140 characters or less

http://j.mp/yVzRCO  (ars technica)

    Chambers was fined 400 pounds plus costs (now over 3,000). But he
    has appealed the case, which was heard in London this week, and
    the ruling will set precedent as the first time an appellate court
    has considered this sort of issue related to social media.  The UK
    isn't the only government not sure how to handle tweets. Two weeks
    ago, British tabloid The Sun interviewed a man and woman who had
    been sent back home after long flights to California, where
    Homeland Security agents pointed to a recent tweet from the man
    saying, "Free this week, for quick gossip/prep before I go and
    destroy America."
