Angry tweets mistake SCOTUSblog for official Supreme Court Twitter account

Twitter users who mistook SCOTUSblog’s Twitter account for an official U.S. Supreme Court Twitter account fired off angry tweets on Monday condemning the Supreme Court’s decision on the health-care law’s contraceptive mandate.

The 5-4 decision held that the Religious Freedom Restoration Act protects closely held corporations whose owners have religious qualms about providing insurance coverage for contraceptives to their workers. The Wall Street Journal Law Blog published its favorite SCOTUSblog replies (which follow modified tweets or retreats of the criticism).

They include:

Guilty verdict against 'Cannibal Cop' overturned by federal judge

EEOC case alleging ADA violations against Womble Carlyle nixed by federal judge
