No Tweets for Blagojevich

The Chicago Tribune reports that at last week's of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich's corruption trial, the federal District Court Judge James B. Zagel admonished the former governor not to tweet from the trial.

Zagel may have been concerned because Blagojevich set up a two weeks before the trial began, and his first message was "Please follow on Twitter for the latest updates. I am innocent and look forward to clearing my name." The day before the trial began, Blagojevich tweeted, "looking forward to opening statements because that will unlock the truth... stay tuned.
