Twitter has reportedly sent out thousands of emails warning users to delete posts exposing the celebrity coupleBethany Clarke/Getty Images

The entertainment personality whose partner was involved in a threesome with another couple, is now trying to prevent people on Twitter from revealing their names as well. Users who have named the celebrity couple have received emails from Twitter's legal team warning them of legal action if they do not "voluntarily" delete the tweets.

"We are writing to inform you that Twitter has received legal correspondence regarding specific content posted on your Twitter account," the email, which thousands of users have claimed to have received, states. "The complainant requests that the following tweet, allegedly in violation of local law in the UK, be removed immediately from your account.

"Please confirm whether you will voluntarily comply with the request."

The move from the famous couple comes after 19 May's Supreme Court ruling that maintained the gagging order, which means the two people's names are required to be kept secret despite the fact that their names have been circulating on the internet for a while.

The Twitter warning not only relates to people in the UK and Wales where the injunction holds ground. According to MailOnline, one Briton living in Spain was also sent a mail despite the fact that Spain does not fall under the jurisdiction of the UK court.

Another Twitter user living in New Zealand got a similar email from Twitter Legal. Others within the UK have all but dismissed the warning and have posted new tweets either hinting at or blatantly mentioning names.

The famous personality who is being referred to only as PJS earlier asked Google UK to remove any links from its search list that lead to stories that reveal their names. The injunction and subsequent ruling to uphold it are being criticised by many as an attack on free press and freedom of speech.

Facebook users in the UK could also receive similar warnings if they mentioned the celebrity couple's names.
