Mike Butcher on TechCrunch states that the ‘public nature of social networks is causing a disconnect in British society which has implications for our freedom of speech.’ He says that journalists used to support whisteblowers, but now seem more intent on going after Twitterers, citing recent examples. Butcher asks if Deep Throat had a Twitter account would the journalist have gone after the user or gone after what they were talking about?
