Ryan Giggs: Is this the first ever Tweet?

Thanks to our intrepid team of Tweet searchers, Malcolm Coles has dug out what he thinks is the first Tweet stating Ryan Giggs was having an affair with Imogen Thomas.

Given we believe the injunction was taken out the next day, 15 April 2011 (please prove us wrong), this Tweeter has not breached the injunction so will not have to worry about a knock on the door from Twopence-Ruck LLP.

@unknownj, James Webley, must be very pleased himself.


  1. twitter search is crap

  2. This might potentially invalidate the injunction. The decisions so far have been that because Trafigura was outed as suing the BBC for libel before the injunction was obtained, the court held that it could not restrain information already made public, but CTB was only identified after the injunction was granted. This may turn it on its head.
