whoever57 writes: Ryan Gibbs, a UK footballer (soccer player) had obtained a "superinjunction" that prevented him being named as the person involved in an affair with a minor celebrity. However, he was named by various users on Twitter. Now, in response to legal action initiated by Mr. Giggs in the UK courts against the users, Twitter has stated that it is prepared to identify the users who broke the injunction if it was "legally required" to do so. Twitter will attempt to notify the users first in order to give them an opportunity to exercise their rights.
