From The Guardian:
11.47am: Esther Addley managed to pop out of the court to report on the judges comments about Twitter.
“This is not something I normally deal with,” he said. “District judge Riddle [on Tuesday] did permit the use of Tweets. That’s to say short text messages, made by use of a Blackberry or a laptop,” Mr Justice Ouseley said.
He said tweets from the court would represent a distraction.
“I recognise the calls for debate… The issue involving Twitter may involve the potential for disruption to the atmosphere of the court, which one might call it’s dignity.”
Esther added that Assange looks “frazzled.” He is wearing a white shirt with no tie and a dark shirt. He is flanked in the dock by two guards and behind ornate bars, she added.
