PORTLAND – The Maine Judicial Branch is tweeting.

Don’t expect snark on the MECourts Twitter account. Instead, the court system will tweet announcements about new information posted to its website.

At this point, that includes new court rules, administrative orders, Supreme Judicial Court decisions and storm closings. But the courts’ use of Twitter may expand, said Mary Ann Lynch, a spokeswoman for the court system.

The goal is to let people know about the availability of useful information on the judicial branch’s website, www.courts.state.me.us, Lynch said.

“It’s an experiment. We’ll be looking for feedback, particularly from the media and the bar,” she said.

Lynch said she, Tracie Lammers, the courts’ webmaster, and Matt Pollack, the clerk of the supreme court, will be doing most of the tweeting.
