What happens in court?

The West midlands police are getting a bit of a reputation for using twitter in innovative and quite frankly brilliant ways!  Not so long ago they posted every single 999 call they received and I made a wordle out of them which became my most popular post ever!

Today, they’ve been tweeting everything that goes on inside Birmingham magistrates’ court and so I decided to do the same with these tweets to try and get a sense of exactly what goes on in court in a typical day…

And there we have it.  The bigger the word, the more frequently it was tweeted so the most striking thing is that the average person attending this morning was a man, guilty of assault and got a fine!

It’d be interesting to see whether or not this was affected by seasonal trends or geographically if other courts decide to follow the lead of WMP.
