Well, unless someone decides to make an example of you.

Who'd have thought that the Communications Act 2003 would be applied to an obviously harmless Tweet, or that the Malicious Communications Act 1988 would be applied to someone posting a photo on their own facebook page.

That a law obviously shouldn't be applied in a certain situation in no way means that it won't be.
