Trial gets under way, reporting by Tweets

Technology takes over for reports from Allen Stanford’s criminal trial in Houston, Texas today.

I’m still in Mississippi, but it’s been fun closely monitoring Twitter and trial tweets by various reporters on the scene.

Folks say reporters are from all over, England etc. I even saw a tweet early today in a foreign language. Can’t say I knew its exact translation or what world it was coming from. How interesting.

It won’t be long before I’m out there and breathing that chemical air in downtown Houston.

The trial judge insisted, this morning, that he’s ready to go full speed ahead, so it may be time to saddle up.
