CNET UK Podcast 238: Freedom of Tweech

Twitter says injunction-breakers' names will be turned over to the police, but can we keep people from spilling the beans now that anyone can publish anything online?

We're exercising our freedom of Tweech this week by talking straight into your earholes for half an hour. But there are some things you just can't say, and we'll be talking more about Twitter, super-injunctions and freedom of the press in this week's feature.

Feature

"If we're legally required to turn over user information, to the extent that we can, we want to notify the user involved -- let them know and let them exercise their rights under their own jurisdiction," said Tony Wang, who is Twitter's newly-installed European boss.

So, the question is, how would you feel about Twitter handing over your ID to the fuzz? Is Twitter a publisher? It's not even in the UK, so what's the big deal? These questions and more get a sound seeing-to in our feature.

Feedback

Is the PSN compensation enough (no), who is the gadget personality of the year (Nick) and COD vs Duke Nukem (LA Noire) are three more questions you'll never have to ask again in our feedback section.
