Jodi Arias' Jailhouse Tweets Reportedly Stir Controversy

When you go to jail, you’re supposed to lose not only your freedom, but also Internet access. However, as Phoenix’s Fox 10 News has discovered, accused killer Jodi Arias has apparently found a way to stay in touch with the world via Twitter.

Locked up, sitting in the Estrella Jail in Phoenix, Arias, 32, does not appear to be bored with her first-degree murder trial.

“Hmm... Anger Management problems anyone?” Arias Tweeted on April 5. An apparent dig at prosecutor Juan Martinez who is famously aggressive for his questioning of witnesses on the stand.

According to Fox 10 News, Arias has been communicating with her 2,000 plus followers via Twitter since February. The account, according to the news network, is managed by Arias' friend, Donavan Bering.

Bering told Fox 10 that she talks to Arias on a daily basis and updates the account with messages told to her by Arias.

Another tweet, also apparently directed at Martinez, reads, "Those afflicted with Little Man's Syndrome taint society's perception of genuinely good men who happen to be vertically challenged."

Arias is on trial for the June 4, 2008 slaying of her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander. Arias claims she was was physically and emotionally battered by Alexander and feared for her life when she shot him, stabbed him nearly 30 times, and cut his throat from ear to ear in his Mesa, Ariz., home on June 4, 2008.

Prosecutors say Arias killed Alexander in a jealous rage.

The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office told Fox 10 that they are aware of Arias’ Twitter account and also her sale of her artwork via that same account, but said they are unable to do anything about it because she has not yet been convicted.

Arias' trial is scheduled to resume at 1:30 p.m. Eastern time on Thursday.
