Appeal says juror sent 'tweets' at trial - The Boston Globe

Sign of the times…

A building materials company and its owner have appealed a $12.6 million verdict against them, alleging that a juror was posting related messages on Twitter.com while hearing the case.

The motion filed Thursday seeking a new trial claims juror Jonathan Powell of Fayetteville sent eight messages - or "tweets" - to the micro-blogging website via his cellular phone. One read in part: "oh and nobody buy Stoam. Its bad mojo and they'll probably cease to Exist, now that their wallet is 12m lighter."
