Corruption 2.0

I don’t know if this is ironic or just novel, but former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich is using Twitter to tweet during his federal corruption trial. You too can follow along with governorrod! Too bad the prosecution isn’t also tweeting their case, so we can have a full micro-blogging court of public opinion.

His first tweet? “I am innocent and look forward to clearing my name.”

Just a few months ago Blagojevich was “fired” by Donald Trump, because he couldn’t figure out how to send a text message. In the past he has admitted to having trouble using cell phones. I guess he has learned his lesson.

UPDATE: The Judge has banned Blagojevich from tweeting in court.
