SCOTUS Online Tools: @Big_Cases

This is the first in a four part series highlighting Supreme Court online tools.  Each segment of this series will introduce a different online tool relating to the Supreme Court.

The first tool that will be highlighted is a Twitter feed: @Big_Cases.  This tool is a big cases bot that gives “real time updates on the latest filings in major cases in U.S. district courts and the U.S. Supreme Court.” This tool can be conveniently accessed here.

Below is what the homepage looks like.

This tool includes hyperlinks to articles, lists, and actual filings.  Users can also see what is happening within the feed by clicking on “Tweets & replies”. Below is the result when a user clicks “Tweets & replies” from the homepage.
