Each year, Gardner-Webb University Department of Communications and New Media Professor Dr. Joseph Webb teaches students about media law and how to navigate the sometimes-murky waters of social media publishing platforms. Webb recently offered insight into a landmark case involving a celebrity, her attorney, and Twitter.
