Lyle Denniston (#teamlyle)

Lyle Denniston, a journalist who has covered the Supreme Court for more than a half-century, doesn’t even use Twitter after briefly giving it a try last year. But his name will be all over the site today as the court announces its decision on the constitutionality of President Obama’s healthcare law.

Denniston is one of the rare few whose reputation has earned him a Twitter hashtag — and rarer still considering he is an 81-year-old journalist for a relatively obscure blog that on most days is read primarily by lawyers. His fans hope to make him popular enough that the #teamlyle hashtag starts trending.
