I have a personal connection to this trial, but until the verdict is rendered, I’m not going to make any comments. But I can link to this summary of what was said. This is from The Hollywood Reporter.
The trial isn’t the first to address defamation on Twitter. But it’s the first one inside a U.S. courtroom involving a celebrity. And because of that, this so-called “twibel” proceeding is unique. Holmes, through her connection with Love, has been deemed a limited-purpose public figure, and as such, Holmes will need to demonstrate that Love acted with malice. That puts a famous Twitter user’s state of mind front and center.
