Kim Dotcom’s New Twitter Is Basically A Big Old ‘Screw You’ To the Authorities

Still living just as large as he can manage.

Anyone who’s ever been stopped for speeding or busted for drinking at a city beach has wanted to give the law the finger. But most of us, were we ever to find ourselves indicted, would likely chose to keep a low profile.

Kim Dotcom, however, is not like the rest of us. He wouldn’t know how to make himself inconspicuous if someone pirated a how-to video and uploaded it to MegaUpload for him. And so it’s no surprise that, as he waits in New Zealand for a court decision on whether he’ll be extradited to the U.S. and tried for criminal copyright infringement, Mr. Dotcom is using his brand-new Twitter account as a distribution channel for Instagram pics and sly wisecracks about his present legal difficulties.

Our hearts go out to this man’s legal representation.
