Hacked Off's Leveson Twitter Q&A this afternoon
Leveson announces his recommendations any moment now. The Prime Minister received a copy yesterday, the Core Participant Victims and their lawyers are in a lock-in reading it now and Lord Justice Leveson will give a statement at 1:30pm. The Prime Minister’s response follows, and then the Deputy Prime Minster. Hacked Off will be holding a press conference shortly after.
Hacked Off want to make sure that the public are involved in the reform of our media. We will be holding a live Q&A at 5:30pm on Twitter directly following the press conference, during which a panel of experts and victims will respond to some of your queries relating to what Leveson reports.
When the inquiry started, Lord Justice Leveson ruled that journalists could tweet from the hearing room, enabling them to share publicly emerging information with the public instantaneously. The Leveson Inquiry also tweeted updates. Hacked Off provided some of the most comprehensive online coverage during the hearings to ensure the public were informed. We will continue to do the same as he announces his recommendations today, and as the legislative process continues.
We expect to start the Q&A to start at around 5:30pm. If you’d like to have your question answered by a victim of press abuse or one of our experts, tweet it to us with the hashtag #HackedOffQA. We’ll try to cover as much as we can.
In the meantime, please follow our Twitter updates throughout the day, and have a look at our must-read blogs on the right.
