An Arkansas man has had his death penalty conviction overturned because one juror during his case was tweeting and another juror fell asleep. Twenty-six year old Erickson Dimas-Martinez was found guilty in 2010 of robbing and murdering a 17-year-old boy outside of a party in 2006. During his trial, one juror fell asleep, and another posted to his Twitter account regarding the case. While the tweets did not divulge specific details of the case, the juror went against specific instructions to not discuss the case in any manner, online or off.
If this guy doesn't have the highest Klout score possible, then Klout seriously has to reconsider their ranking formula. Because let me tell you something, a single tweet, deciding the fate, the life or death, of a man, is flat out as baller as it gets. I'm not saying the results are pleasant, I'm just saying this guys Tweet, held more Klout than any other tweet ever. Even more than when Ashton Kutcher defended that pedofile Sandusky and then pretended he didn't know what was going on in the news even though it was basically impossible to have not heard the story at that point.
I'm over here, thrilled about getting a retweet or two a day, celebrating every time I pick up a follower that doesn't appear to be spam, meanwhile this guys tweet game is so prolific he's undermining the entire justice system. Some guys just got all the juice.
