The American Civil Liberties Union of Oregon raised serious concerns over the suspension of about 20 high school students in Salem who were disciplined for retweeting. The objectionable tweet named a specific McKay High School teacher, and accused her of flirting with students.

The tweets in question were posted by a twitter account, called @SalemConfessions. Individuals email the account manager and the messages are then posted anonymously. Similar anonymous twitter accounts have surfaced in Clark County, Washington.
