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.
