In our continuing, sporadic monitoring of Web 2.0, we note a news story with Eugene Volokh’s comments on an arrest for failure to Tweet.
“We asked for his help in getting the crowd to go away by sending out a Twitter message,” [Det. Lt.] Smith said. “By not cooperating with us we feel he put lives in danger and the public at risk.”
I must confess that I too, having no Twitter account, did nothing to stop the problem. I apologize to anyone who has been damaged by my lack of 140-character updates. Ethic, however, is Tweeting.
