Thanks for the UK average worker's equivalent of £3.78 Zuck. Much appreciated.

Depends when the tweet was posted. After, and you're in the clear. Before, and if you live in England or Wales, and you mentioned the superinjunction in a tweet too... then you are liable.
What if you mentioned Streisand and Giggs?
I hope that Gigg's lawyers don't manage to convince the judge that there should be a one-size fits all ruling/judgement against people who tweeted about Giggs before the MP broke the gagging aspect of the injunction. This wide-reaching injunction-happy judiciary may be prone to making sweeping punishment-happy rulings that can ruin people's lives more so than being a minor celebrity being caught up in a minor scandal published in low quality tabloids.
I live in Cheltenham, UK (a city of approximately 100,000) and my 5 year old flat block has over 150 units in it; but due to anti-competitive ISP consolidation (and very bad business decisions), companies haven't invested in modern internet infrastructure. I've seen my local exchange. It is a barely manageable mess of copper cables and dangling punch down blocks which isn't due an to upgrade to support ADSL2 for more than a year.
The fastest internet connection I can purchase is a mere 2.2mbps downstream/100 kbps upstream; I had faster internet access 20 years ago when I lived in Ottawa, Canada. Screw the villagers, put the money were the population is.
It may be that the UK has already rejected the idea; however, there is a large £300m pound fine against London for being the most polluted city in the UK. The fine, coupled with the potential congestion charge expansions, the result may still be no petrol cars in London in 39 years.

Maybe someone should tell the CRIA that "grassroots" campaigns coming from paid staffers is called astroturf.
