Paul Chambers has been found Guilty at the Twitter "bomb hoax" joke trial (for background see here).
He was prosecuted under section 127 of the Communications Act 2003 for sending an "indecent, obscene or menacing" message for Tweeting the following joke:
"Crap! Robin Hood Airport is closed. You've got a week... otherwise I'm blowing the airport sky high!"
Paul now has a £1,000 fine and a criminal record.
More information as it becomes available.
