Stephen Fry has said that British judges don't understand Twitter.
The author and actor was speaking in response to the appeal of Paul Chambers at the High Court. The 27-year-old was convicted and fined in May 2010 for posting a message threatening to blow up Robin Hood Airport in South Yorkshire.
He said the tweet was a joke and he was frustrated because snow had closed the airport. A judgement on whether to quash his conviction has been reserved.
