Germany to investigate leak of election result on Twitter - Telegraph
Twitter, the microblogging website, is at the centre of a political furore in Germany, after MPs used it to leak news of the president's re-election.

News that Hörst Köhler had been re-elected as German president on Saturday was published on Twitter almost 15 minutes before the official result was announced, the Financial Times reports.

Julia Klöckner , of chancellor Angela Merkel's CDU party, told her Twitter "followers": "People, you can watch the football in peace. The vote was a success."
