Any use of social media sites is against the integrity of judges, as stated in the notification. Twitter and social media applications are used by judicial authorities to disperse their messages, even though it is a breach of the Code of Conduct. Judicial authorities who post messages on social media are later acquired, but with no evidence, by electronic and print media, as stated in the notification issued.
