UK court orders service via twitter

The BBC news reports that the UK High Court has ordered that an injunction be served via twitter.  From the article: The order is to be served against an unknown Twitter user who anonymously posts to the site using the same name as a right-wing political blogger.

The order demands the anonymous Twitter user reveal their identity and stop posing as Donal Blaney, who blogs at a site called Blaney's Blarney.

The order says the Twitter user is breaching the copyright of Mr Blaney.

We have seen service by Facebook in Canada - perhaps it is inevitable that in the right circumstances we will see service by twitter.
