Abstract

The fallout from the McAlpine saga has led to increasing fears that legal action will have a ‘chilling effect’ on the microblogging platform. Paul Bernal argues that Twitter provides something quite special for the media and that it should be nurtured. It’s possible a defence may develop naturally from the legal processes McAlpine’s team bring about but, if not, we ought to work to develop it.
