There is now a Twitter feed for news from the U.S. Supreme Court. The blog Law Tech Review suggests that this feed comes directly from the court, which uses it to disseminate information about its latest activities. But I strongly doubt that the feed is from the court. If it is from the court, then why does it provide links to Supreme Court opinions posted at the Legal Information Institute instead of the opinions posted on the court’s own official site? And why does it link to only some but not all of the opinions issued so far this term? And why would the nation’s highest court choose to follow on Twitter only five feeds — The White House, the House, the Senate and two feeds owned by a man who appears to be equally consumed by U.S. politics and Christian fundamentalism? No, even though this feed bears the name of the Supreme Court, I don’t think the court is its source.
