Cummins Station-based wrestling company TNA Entertainment has launched a second high-profile lawsuit a month after accusing rival WWE of interfering with its business. This time, TNA officials are after Scott Steiner, a wrestler who has been on their roster since late 2010. They say Steiner is breaching his contract by making disparaging Twitter remarks about fellow wrestlers, including Hulk Hogan, and the TNA organization as a whole.

Picking up where their recent poke at Honda's supply chain problems left off, Nissan's marketing team yesterday worked hard to disrupt the Twitter chatter related to Toyota's introduction of the 2012 Camry. Michael Ramsey at the Journal has the details.
Larry Bodine, a popular legal business development expert, reports on his blog the unique story of Christopher Levinson, law firm administrator for the Masry Vititoe firm in Westlake Village near Los Angeles. If that name sounds familiar, it's because the firm employed Erin Brockovich, the law clerk made famous by the memorable face of Julia Roberts.
Now, Levinson is attracting the attention. He has 52,477 followers on Twitter and 1,100 LinkedIn contacts and the numbers are growing every day. How did he get so many followers?
Levinson said he likes to do good and enjoys tweeting about topics that help people. And, perhaps most impressively, he follows back every person who follows him. He started his Twitter account about two years ago but said he has not gotten his arms around the social media thing. Levinson said he tweets when he has time, which is usually early morning and late in the evening. To date, he has sent more than 1,300 tweets.
Levinson's social media accounts are not connected to the law firm, although Levinson tweets about legal issues that would interest potential clients, Bodine writes. Much of Levinson’s material comes from his membership in several litigation and product recall listservs.
