Regardless of whether you're a defendant or plaintiff, all parties to a lawsuit need to heed extreme caution when using social media
Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, Instagram, etc., regardless of the medium, any social media site needs to be made private. As private as possible. In these modern times, a routine investigation of public social media sites is common. Anything you said or posted can and will be used against you, and it is not a violation of privacy to obtain it if it's readily available to the public.
Avoid talking about the claim - even if the account is private
I've seen posts like "I'm about to get paid" sabotage a claim. There is no reason to ever go to any social media site and talk about a claim! Even if you're the one being sued, to go online and bash the plaintiff will never, ever help your position. I recommend being weary of even direct messages. Bottom line, do not put into writing anything that relates to a lawsuit. There is zero benefits and tremendous risk.
