It has been reported that "CTB" has lodged a claim against Twitter and "persons unknown".
What could this possibly mean?
It is important at this stage to be aware of what one cannot know for certain:
1. that the "CTB" is actually the same person as "CTB" in the recent privacy case (though it appears the same law firm is instructed);
2. what the claim is for in terms of law - is it a privacy claim or is it under some other form of law; and
3. what the remedy requested is - is it a damages claim or is it for disclosure by Twitter of third party information (for example the information of those who have used Twitter accounts to break - rather than repeat - allegations), or for something else.
As yet, we simply do not know.
However, it is unlikely to be a mass law suit against all people who have retweeted the allegations.
