"Tweets from the jury box: jurors using Twitter jeopardize trials"

"In one case, a juror divulged a verdict on Twitter before it was announced. Now, some judges are trying to manage how members of the jury use Twitter.

...[A] Baltimore City Circuit Court judge, now warns jurors: "At no time are you permitted to talk to the witnesses, lawyers or parties, go to the scene or use Google, Facebook or Twitter concerning the case."

Are you facing similar issues and are you requesting similar instructions?

Don't all judges take up cells (smart phones, etc.) before deliberations?
