Man sues pr0n starlet after Twitter rejection
Follow me or face the judge
When you follow someone on Twitter, only for them to not return the favour, are you left with a feeling of rejection? Does it rile you up into a vengeful fit of rage?
Either way, one thing you should never do is take that person to court. You will look like an idiot and it might be exposed by bloodthirsty news publications desperately vying for a cheap laugh. Ahem.
One fortysomething Japanese Twittaholic did exactly that, after popular skinflick actress Aoi Sola refused to follow him back despite countless requests, the Tokyo Reporter writes.
"I am a fan of yours; please follow me."
"Please consider following."
"How's work? Your English is getting better. Please follow me," Tweeted the seemingly obsessed man.
Without response, the dude stewed and stewed - and then decided to take legal action against the temptress, who was recently banned from satellite TV shows because of the nature of her employment.
Apparently, the man wanted to know the reasons why she was banned, hence his reaching out so desperately. He has a history of making similar pleas to other Japanese celebrities and high-profile figureheads, it's said.
We can't say how the case will pan out, although we're pretty sure the verdict can be delivered in fewer than 140 characters. ®
Re: Tweeting is for Twits
I was going to up vote you but then decided you mustn't need it.
'Get a life, you sad wanker.'
There, that's a verdict in a lot less than 140 chars.
Its Rule 34
In case of porn, avoid court

Slightly related: A friend of mine ordered some jap porn off the net. Instead he got a letter from customs saying it was illegal in this country and had been confiscated, but if he wanted to appeal he was free to take it to court.
I asked what his plan was: "I'll appeal it of course!" So I asked what grounds he was going to appeal on... "Personal use"! He did realise that it might be a bad idea, once I'd pointed out that he'd have to travel down to london and stand up in court and try to persuade the judge to let him have dodgy japanese porn for 'personal use' :D
Holy shit. Wow. That is all. Just wow.
