- Social media, a global phenomenon that has transformed the way we live, receive our news, and elect our politicians, has profoundly impacted divorce litigation. What a precarious situation people find themselves in when all of their uninhibited thoughts and questionable conduct wind up on social media. They live under the false pretense that deleting their “posts” ensures their privacy. In reality, their uninhibited thoughts and questionable conduct have presented as new forms of evidence in matrimonial litigation that could muddy the waters for some litigants. Indeed, as we well know, when something is deleted, it is never truly deleted., Author, Til "Tweets" Do Us Part: Social Media and Its Impact on Matrimonial Litigation, Nassau Lawyer, 2020
