TWEETS FROM THE RHODE ISLAND COURTS
03/26/2012 -
Initiated by Rhode Island Supreme Court Chief Justice Paul A. Suttell, the Rhode Island Judiciary introduced the @CourtsRI Twitter feed on March 9th. After reviewing the approaches of other states’ court systems, the Judiciary embarked on its own feed. Beginning with announcements including links to Rhode Island Supreme Court opinions as they are published, anticipated future messages may feature links to Judiciary news releases ranging from Supreme Court committee assignments, matters that affect the Bar, updates from other Rhode Island courts, and announcements should the weather affect court operations. You may access the Court’s new Twitter page and messages via a button on upper right side of the Rhode Island Court’s Home page at www.courts.ri.gov or use this direct link: https://twitter.com/#!/CourtsRI

Past and current Court Twitters are posted on the website. You may connect to future tweets by signing up as a follower, allowing you to receive these through your computer on the Internet and/or by installing an appropriate application on your handheld communication devices and tablets.
