Should Vybz Kartel be allowed to keep his Twitter account active knowing that he has been incarcerated but not convicted of two murder charges, and a conspiracy to pervert the course of justice charge?    


While prisoners do lose certain constitutional rights such as the right to vote when they are incarcerated. The Charter of Rights does ensure that the prisoner be afforded a minimum standard of living, including medical care. Prisoners are also afforded due process in their administrative appeals and the right to access a parole board. In the US, Inmates are not allowed to tweet directly, but with specific approval, they can express themselves through Twitter using tweet sheets.
Puerto Rico prisoners are spouting words of wisdom in 140 characters or less as part of a state-run program to deter young criminals. Three inmates at a Guayama prison, including two convicted murderers, have been granted access to the social media site to share their stories of life behind bars.
Not sure if Kartel is going to use his twitter account to advance a social cause? What do you think????
