Connecticut Judicial Branch Now Using Twitter @ctstatecourts

The Connecticut Judical Branch has announced that it has created a twitter account.  So can we expect to see judges tweeting about their favorite Justin Beiber song or maybe tweets like "OMG  Did you see what attorney Smith wore to court today? LOL"  Not quite.  The following is a press release from the Judicial Branch.
We look forward to the service.

Quinn said.  “Our account will link 
followers to new information posted on the Branch’s website, at, and we hope that users will find this ‘real-time’ service beneficial.”  The Branch’s Twitter account is at!/search/CtStateCourts; it may also be accessed through an icon on the Judicial Branch’s website.  To set up a Twitter account, followers may sign up at  Accounts may be set up to receive notifications by cellular phone as well.
