Ok may be defamatory if we vouch for it. (or retweet without any comment)

But what if we re-tweet and say "this is wrong / unacceptable" ? i.e. we are against that tweet

well the case is about a retweet. not a quoted retweet. so court basically said that you are endorsing what you retweet. lots of twitter folks say that retweets are not endorsements or something on similar lines.

hopefully, someday soon. people would be held responsible for 'forwarded as received' whatsapp messages.

Yes --- forwarded as received is most annoying.

Especially when you correct someone and then they reply - "I just forwarded what I got!"
