JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- It's being called the social media trial of the century, even though that century is relatively new.

Casey Anthony awaits the jury's decision after they deliberated for more than five hours Monday. Special Twitter pages are dedicated to the trial and some attract almost 20,000 followers.

The judge allows reporters to have mobile phone in the courtroom, which allows instant updates.

TV ratings are also way up as many people get the trial coverage the traditional way.
