Twitter banned at royal wedding
Sydney - No tweeting allowed at the royal wedding.
Social networking site Twitter
has been banned from the royal wedding with signal-blocking technology to be installed at Westminster Abbey, reports Australia's Herald Sun
According to Yahoo, the move was suggested by members of the royal family and approved by security.
A police official confirmed that the technology, which also blocks calls and therefore untimely ringtones, will be turned on early Friday morning local time and will run for the duration of the ceremony.
The news comes after the Australian Broadcasting Corporation was forced to scrap The Chaser team's satirical coverage
of the wedding after the BBC denied access to footage for anything other than a serious telecast of the event.
