For a NON-sequestered jury, state of Arizona, Capital Murder case: Does the judge's admonishment for the jury include posting to social media sites like Facebook or Twitter? Couldn't a jury member conceivably post to Twitter or Facebook without discussing the case and simply stay away from sites, searches or twitter accounts that contain information about or discuss the case? - Thank you.

Usually the judge during his admonishment mentions using the internet to communicate with others about the case as well as discussing the case face to face with others. If the judge doesn't specifically mention it, it still is a communication to another about the case. It would be prohibited and doing so would violate the judge's order.
