I am appauled at this. Someone makes an obvious non-threat and gets convicted, and now lost on appeal.
The conviction was not even for making the threat but for a telecoms act breach of sending a menacing communication!
It is crazy. I am speechless. I am updating the text on the top of this page "just in case" now.
Maybe twitter can be made safe by adding something like "If you find any words or pictures menacing, read no more." to the top of every page just in case too?
... follow up.
Serious question - thousands of people have and are re-tweeting the same threat. They are not a credible threat, but neither was the original. All suffer from the same "what if some fictitious older couple due to fly from that airport looked at twitter". Exactly what excuse have the CPS got for not prosecuting every one of them?
