Brazil Files Lawsuit Over Police Trap Tweets [bbc.co.uk]
|The Brazilian government has filed a lawsuit against Twitter, demanding that the firm remove accounts in the country that warn citizens of police speed traps and roadblocks. |
The authorities are concerned the service is undermining its efforts to tackle drink-driving in the country.
The lawsuit also orders Twitter to pay 500,000 reals ($290,000; £183,000) for each day that it does not comply with the request.
