U.S. Supreme Court takes on social media

Due to a recent case that involved a man serving nearly three years in prison for posting threats about his ex-wife on Facebook, the U.S. Supreme Court took a deeper look Monday into the threats posted through social media, and whether they hinge on First Amendment rights.

Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan is one of the justices who feels the standards that may be set  on social media threats are too low.
