Surely, libel is libel, whatever media is used.
It surely isn't the 'wild west web' as much now, on a personal level though I'm not sure whether being allowed to anonymously post your thoughts online is a good thing. Why hide and blow your trumpet when you can back it up with your identity?
On the flip side, Twitter has been used politically and I wouldn't like to see anyone in North Africa 'reporting facts' being persecuted in their own country (and against their own country's 'emergency laws')
