Twitter User Jailed For Using ''ALLAH'' in His Handle

  A teacher in Turkey has been jailed for 'humiliating religious values' after he used the nickname 'Allah C.C.' on Twitter.

                 The user, named Ertan P, was accused by prosecutors in the eastern province of Muş of 'writing harmful content' for including the name of God and the Prophet. The court rejected the defendant's claim that his account was hacked and he was handed 15 months behind bars.

C.C. is the abbreviation of the honorific Arabic phrase 'Celle Celaluhu' which means, '[Allah's] glory is so almighty.' His handle, still live on Twitter, also included the Prophet's name.
