Legal proceedings are being taken by a professional footballer against Twitter for allegedly publishing information covered by a super-injunction.

I note that Google predictive search can also be made to give out the answer too by typing certain searches.....

Now that it's been posted on numerous Twitter accounts and elsewhere, searches also include the footballer's name in Google's snippets.

If it really were a "superinjunction" then the British media would not even be able to mention its existence (overseas readers may understandably have difficulty with this concept).

As for Mr Name-everybody-knows-but-redacted-on-legal-advice, he is now paying his lawyers for a very expensive lesson in how the "Streisand Effect" works.
