Stephen Fry says British judges don't understand Twitter
Stephen Fry has said that British judges don't understand Twitter. The author and actor was speaking in response to the appeal of Paul Chambers at the High Court. The 27-year-old was convicted and fined in May 2010 for posting a message threatening to blow up Robin Hood Airport in South Yorkshire. He said the tweet was a joke and he was frustrated because snow had closed the airport. A judgement on whether to quash his convinction has been reserved.
