Looking at that tweet, and the article it links to, I can't see how it can be in violation of the injunction which was just upheld. It doesn't name any names, and in fact it's very careful to avoid doing so.

In addition, of course, I live in Scotland, where the injunction doesn't hold (and, indeed, I believe the names were published by a major newspaper).

If anyone would like to tell me differently, then I'd be fascinated to hear more...
