Submission + - Weev placed in solitary confinement for tweeting from prison (

An anonymous reader writes: Andrew “Weev” Auernheimer, the highest-profile prisoner found guilty of breaking the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act has been placed in solitary confinement, his lawyer believes.

The reason, Weev says, is because he was tweeting from prison. ...

Weev's lawyer, Tor Ekeland, can't get in touch with him despite constant attempts. It's been about 10 days since they had contact.

"I'm running into a brick wall," Ekeland told the Daily Dot. The prison "hasn't notified me of anything. I've tried calls, emails, faxes, saying please get back to me. I've called the general number five times today."
