The Palm Beach Post recently published this story regarding the allowance of texts, blogging and other forms of communication at federal courthouses.
This is quite a coup for the new media age. Court reporting is an ideal use for Twitter, as reporters often need to chronicle the progress of a court case without immediate means.
This allowance will likely boost page views from readers who want to keep track of a given court case. More page views means more opportunities to advertise.
Could this be a step toward saving newspapers?
