Victory For Spoof Tweeter
Mail Bosses Withdraw US Twitter Action

Overnight bosses at the Daily Mail and General Trust suffered humiliation as they withdrew their case against the spoof Steve Auckland twitter account holder. The decision marks a significant victory for the spoofer, who Guido has aided over the last two weeks by arranging the services of a pro bono US attorney. Guido has obtained the court documents (see Notice of Dismissal) that show Northcliffe Media admitting defeat in their bid to unmask the tweeter. A grovelling letter from Northcliffe to the account’s author, who will now forever be known only as John Doe, has also found its way to Guido:

In a statement the spoofer gave thanks to Guido for his role in the case:

“I want to heartily thank Guido, because without his initial efforts I would not have found my pro bono lawyer in the States and Northcliffe’s subpoena would have gone unchallenged.”

Credit should also be given to Frank Sommers, the San Francisco attorney who took up the case free of charge. Twitter users can now live safe in the knowledge that their freedom to spoof remains protected. Case closed…

GuidoFawkes Quote of the Day

Andrew Neil on the dying Dead Tree Press

“I read more bloggers now than mainstream columnists, because they’ve got more interesting things to say. Too many columnists today make you think, ‘Yeah, I think you’ve said that 10 times before and I’ve just noticed your column has not go a single fact in it’”.
