Jodi Arias Tweeting While On Trial For Murder
It's the latest jaw-dropper in the Jodi Arias murder trial.
HLN Correspondent Jean Casarez said, “Tweet after tweet, taking jabs at the prosecutor, even sending a personal message to our own Nancy Grace.”
That's right. Arias actually made a rude gesture to her outspoken critic, TV personality Nancy Grace, in open court.
Then, unbelievably, to make sure everyone got the message, she tweeted: "Actually, Nancy, that finger was for you. Have a nice day."
On HLN, Senior Reporter for RadarOnline.com, Alexis Tereszcuk said, “The Maricopa County Sheriff's office confirmed it is her and they’ve said unfortunately, there's nothing they can do about it.”
For the 14 weeks Arias has been on trial for the murder of her ex-boyfriend, Travis Alexander, Nancy Grace has beaten her like a drum on her HLN show:
On HLN, Nancy Grace said, “She’s a psycho freak that chases down all of the women her boyfriends are dating.
On Good Morning America, Nancy Grace said, “She took pictures of his dead body in the shower.”
It's understandable why Jodi Arias would be so upset with the commentary.
So how does she send out Twitter messages when she doesn't have access to a computer in jail?
She dictates messages to Donavan Bering, a woman who sits in court just about every day. They became friends when Bering was in jail on an accessory to arson charge.
She’s defended Arias on Good Morning America, saying “I wish I could just say, wait a minute, that’s not true.”
Here are other messages Arias has sent to her 19,000 Twitter followers:
"God bless five-day weekends."
"No, I do not have a girlfriend. After everything I’ve been through it's amazing I’m not gay."
And if the Twitter account isn't shocking enough, Arias uses it to promote a website that's selling artwork she's done in jail. It says "All pieces are authenticated with Jodi Arias' right thumbprint."
A painting by Arias of Grace Kelly sold for over $3,000 and a painting of Frank Sinatra sold for over $1,000.
Arias tweeted, "I hear my website is beautiful. Too bad I can't see it."
But she's certainly getting her message out loud and clear.
