Slander is a form of deamation that that you are after is libel. Libel
is written defamation but slander is defamation in a more transitory
form, like speech, Usenet and Twitter posts and updates on Facebook.
The common law origins of defamation lie in the torts of "slander"
(harmful statement in a transient form, especially speech) and "libel",
each of which gives a common law right of action."
