Tweeting in the Courtroom: Ex-Governor Edition

The federal corruption trial of Ex-Governor of Illinois Rod Blagojevich is set to start this week, but the judge first had to order Blagojevich not to use Twitter from inside the courtroom.  The shameless flamboyant Blagojevich had stated earlier that he planned to "live-tweet" the trial during the proceedings, but the judge was having none of it.

The judge told him that he is still free to tweet and talk to the media all he wants outside the courtroom, but with the warning that everything he says can be used against him in the trial.  No word yet on whether Blago will try to update his Facebook status or "check-in" on Foursquare in the courtroom.  Stay tuned.
