Court joins tweeters
Monday 06 February 2012
The highest court in the land will "tweet" from today, issuing news about judgements.
A court spokesman said that it would be the first Supreme Court in the world to do this.
To launch the service, the Supreme Court will tweet live from the swearing-in of new justice, Lord Reed, who joins the court today.
The spokesman said the aim is to get the channel running before justices prepare their judgement in WikiLeaks' boss Julian Assange's extradition appeal.
