Twitter have been ordered to provide the details of five British users that have been accused of libel on the soial networking webstie.

A California judge has asked for the information in what seems to be the first time that Twitter has had to provide details of British users.

Until now, the social networking site was very defensive of its users, and would resist providing details of thier users.

Thier are fears that this could now spark a number of similar cases coming to the surface.
