The judge’s banning of Twitter from the courtroom during today’s hearing has prompted the Lord Chief Justice to decide that guidance on tweeting in court is needed.

From PA:

The country’s top judge will issue interim guidance on the use of micro-blogging site Twitter in courts after supporters of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange were banned from posting updates today.
Just hours after Mr Justice Ouseley ruled supporters and journalists should not send Tweets to give a blow-by-blow account of proceedings, the judicial communications office said the Lord Chief Justice Lord Judge will issue new guidance for all courts on Monday…
A spokeswoman for the judicial communications office said Lord Judge “will issue interim guidance on the use of Twitter and electronic devices for the purpose of reporting court proceedings pending the conclusion of a consultation process”.
