In the wake of recent revelations concerning super injunction cases in the UK, millions of computer users have been signing up with 140 character social networking site, Twitter, for their daily dose of salacious gossip.

Tweeters have been warned though, that not all the revelations are true, as it has been revealed that reports concerning explicit pictures featuring Jemima Khan and Jeremy Clarkson, leading to an alleged super injunction have been proved to be unfounded.

Worst affected by this recent trend appear to be the owners and contributors to satirical websites. Many of these sites post humorous articles featuring unlikely pair ups between celebrities and sports personalities, and such contributors have seen their stock dwindle with the rise to supremacy of Twitter.

"There's definitely been a distinct slump in views," one satirist commented. "Once upon a time - well, actually, a few days ago, you could mop up on hits with a well crafted Pippa Middleton story. With a headline like: "Pippa Middleton In Threesome With Rowan Atkinson And Peter Beardsley," you'd get thousands of hits. It just doesn't seem to be happening for us lately. Views appear to be down, and traffic has definitely slowed down. The question is: How do we deal with it?

"Some of the writers have switched to sports stories, others have turned to absurdity and surrealism. It's all pretty disturbing."

Satirical website proprietor, Mike Lawson, had this to say:

"We'll just have to tough it out. Whilst Twitter may be revealing in some respects, it simply can't provide the belly laughs like a good satiorical website. You can't do all that much with 140 characters - and you wouldn't get the same 'rolling on the floor laughing my ass off' effect that you would, from, say,'Richard And Judy Caught Up In Nazi Sex Orgy With Max Moseley Three Transsexuals And A Jockey.'

"That sort of thing just doesn't work as well on Twitter."

The struggle continues.

More as we get it.
