Another Twitter Lawsuit - Sign of a Potential Trend?

Another lawsuit involving an allegedly defamatory tweet has been filed, this time in Cook County.  The suit was filed by Horizon Group Management against Amanda Bonnen, a Chicago woman living in one of their apartment properties. 

 According to the lawsuit, Amanda Bonnen wrote, "Who said sleeping in a moldy apartment was bad for you?  Horizon really thinks it's ok."

 If Horizon wins the over $50,000 in damages it has requested, this case could be a harbinger of new standards for the micro-blogosphere.
