What are you doing?

Sam Hasler has highlighted what I consider to be a worrying trend: people using Twitter to publicise the difficulties that they are having securing contact with their children. I have two problems with this: firstly, as any family lawyer will tell you, there are always two sides to every story: publicising one side will inevitably give a skewed picture of what is actually happening. Secondly, as Sam points out, it is surely only a matter of time before people start naming names, which will obviously be a disaster for all concerned, especially the children.
