From live tweets and Instagrams from the Gauteng High Court to reactions from curious onlookers updating their status from their couches, Oscar Pistorius’ murder trial is an event which will appear in your timeline and news feed for days to come.

In an attempt to round up the main events and catalogue the twists in the trial, we’ll be curating a stream of social media posts shared by the journalists on the ground, as well as key officials and commentators.
