Judge Says Lawsuit For False Impersonation On Twitter Can Proceed [mediapost.com]
An employer who allegedly Tweeted under an employee's name potentially faces liability for violating federal law, a federal judge has ruled.

In an opinion issued this week, U.S. District Court Judge Amy J. St. Eve in the Northern District of Illinois refused to dismiss a lawsuit by a director of marketing at an interior design firm who said she was impersonated by her boss on Twitter. The decision means that designer, Jill Maremont, can proceed with the case and gather evidence to prepare for trial.



This one's worth watching, especially for businesses that use employees' to tweet and promote on their behalf.
