US Supreme Court decisions : Twitter tool plays detective

From Gigaom -

An interesting article about the US Supreme Court changing its decisions after publication.  Someone has come up with the technology to alert others of the changes via Twitter.

Summary:

The Supreme Court has long made surreptitious changes to its opinions without telling anyone.  In response, a coder has created a tool that flags and publicizes those changes.


Remember if you are interested in finding out more about Twitter come along to the ALLA (WA) event on Tuesday, 8 July at Jackson McDonald (12.45pm to 2pm).
