TIL It’s Illegal to Lie About Someone on Twitter

Things You're Not Allowed to Do on the Internet

Perhaps I was just being naive. I always assumed that the things that you say on Twitter were protected under free speech and opinions could be posted without recourse as long as they weren’t designed to spread misinformation. With all of the fake death reports about celebrities and people calling each other names, it didn’t seem like there were really very many boundaries.

The video below by Buzzfeed set me straight. Granted, I wouldn’t use Buzzfeed as an authority on social media or the internet, let alone the law, but it seems legit and it’s not important enough to do my own research, so we’re going to trust it. Watch it and see some of the other things that you’re not supposed to do online.
