Professor Peter Black reported yesterday on his blog that a judge in Colorado approved the use of twitter updates by journalists in his courtroom.

Also of note, Dr. Sanjay Gupta confirmed that Obama had approached him for the Surgeon General position via twitter after denying to comment to the New York Times and Huffington Post.
