Isabella Sorley, 23, from Newcastle, arriving at Westminster Magistrates Court, London, where she and John Nimmo are to appear in court charged with improper use of a communications network in relation to tweets to campaigner Caroline Criado-Perez.

One Twitter troll who pleaded guilty to sending "menacing" tweets to a feminist campaigner posted a selfie outside Buckingham Palace this morning on her trip to London for the court case.

Isabella Sorley, from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, sent tweets to campaigner Caroline Criado Perez after Bank of England Governor Mark Carney revealed that Pride and Prejudice author Jane Austen would replace Charles Darwin as the face of the £10 note.

But far from fearing her date with justice, the London trip was an excuse to take in the sights for Sorley, who tweeted about her day's activities.

Sorley, who pleaded guilty along with fellow Twitter troll John Nimmo, 25, has been far from guarded on the social network since her arrest.


In mid December, she tweeted cryptically:

The pair's guilty plea was hailed as a "brilliant day for women" by Criado-Perez.
