Update: Injunction Delivered by Twitter Successful, Says U.K. Lawyer

A U.K. lawyer has declared a court-ordered injunction delivered via Twitter a success.

In an October 5, 2009 post, I blogged about a U.K. court that allowed an injunction be served on an anonymous blogger by Twitter. Donal Blaney sought the injunction to stop an online impersonator.

Blaney now says the Twitter-served injunction stopped the impersonator -- but PCWorld reports that another imitator has sprung up amidst all the publicity surrounding the first. Blaney said he may have to file suit in the U.S. against Twitter to get the identity of the offending Tweeter.
