Misuse of Twitter has cost another person a job after a magistrate was forced from his position after Twittering ongoing cases. The formal complaint was made against one Steve Molyneux who had been magistrate for 16 years.

The man was reported by a colleague to the chairman of the bench after he was caught twittering cases from his iPhone while on break. The man says that he was using the technology to make the judicial system more transparent.

Many fell that the man did nothing wrong by twittering the cases, apparently none of the information that he made available was privileged and he made the Twitter posts while on break.
