A man is facing charges in what police think is the first murder sparked by a row on Twitter. Police said that childhood pals Blake, 22, and Dancy, also 22, lived on the same floor of a block of flats but fell out over a girl and spent weeks trading insults on Twitter. Criminal experts said that the 140-character messages, known as tweets, have never been used as evidence in a murder trial before.
