Most tweeted moment in Montana history?

Today, former UM quarterback Jordan Johnson was acquitted of rape. The trial was followed in detail by a number of live-tweeting accounts, including the Montana Kaimin, the Missoulian and numerous TV stations. The details of the trials ins and outs became regular reading for Montana Twitter users.

Here are the last few minutes of the trial as seen on Twitter. I hope to follow up later this weekend with a more considered post about the Twitter aspect of the trial.
