Twitter has been forced to hand over the details of users of its website in a landmark legal ruling.

The case was brought by a council seeking to uncover the identity of a blogger who criticised officials and councillors.

South Tyneside Council went to the U.S. courts to force Twitter to reveal the person behind the ‘Mr Monkey’ account.

The case could have widespread implications for users of the social networking site, and lead to a flood of actions by lawyers  trying to find out the names of anonymous posters in order to sue them.
