British Court Convicts Man for Threat on Twitter

A British court has convicted Paul Chambers, 26, of sending a menacing Twitter message and fined him £1000 ($1500). On January 6, according to The Register, the closure of an airport in South Yorkshire due to poor weather prompted Chambers to tweet, "Crap! Robin Hood Airport is closed. You've got a week and a bit to get your s*** together otherwise I'm blowing the airport sky high!"
