Let's be honest, it's an easy mistake to make.
You have had a few drinks, you see a story that gets you angry, and you fire off a few tweets.
For Katie Hopkins however just two tweets will set her back £131,000.
The moral is never tweet something you cannot substantiate. The laws of defamation apply just the same.
Ms Hopkins has also been ordered to pay £107,000 towards the campaigner's legal costs within 28 days.
