The bizarre case of a journalist claiming her tweets are not ‘publishable’

On Tuesday, Teri Buhl asked if she could use my site to respond to Techdirt, which reported that she was threatening to sue a lawyer for publishing her tweets.

I let her do that.

Today, Buhl is threatening to sue me for using the photo from her Twitter page. She says she owns the image and never gave me or others permission to publish it. She adds that she’s going to file a small claims suit against Mark Bennett and Techdirt for keeping the photo on their sites after being told to take it down. — More from Jim Romenesko.

UPDATE: (Jan. 28, 2013) New Canaan resident Teri Buhl, who is accused of posting the personal journal entries of her then-boyfriend’s teenage daughter online, made an appearance in Superior Court at Norwalk Monday morning where her trial was postponed until March 22 due to a judge’s absence because of illness. — More.

Boy, talk about irony.
