Submission + - Tweeting in Court Allowed by WikiLeaks Judge (eweekeurope.co.uk)

justice4all writes: The judge overseeing the trial of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange yesterday gave permission for two journalists to post Twitter updates, in what is thought to be only the second time that members of the media have tweeted from the inside a courtroom.

As the hearing began at 2pm on 14 December, special correspondent for The Times, Alexi Mostrous tweeted: “judge just gave me explicit permission to tweet proceedings ‘if it’s quiet and doesn’t disturb anything’.”

Freelance reporter and freedom of information campaigner Heather Brooke also said: “In an amazing nod to the fact we live in digital age, judge has said we can tweet”.
