Tommy’s a tweet thing

Today, for the first time, live tweeting will be allowed from the High Court in Glasgow, for the sentencing of Tommy Sheridan in his perjury case. STV News made a formal written application to be allowed to do so, and permission was granted.

I wonder if this will be an exceptional situation, and live tweeting will only be allowed for this case (due to the media/public interest), or whether this is likely to be something allowed in future for other, less “exciting” cases?
