Guests at the annual Australian television awards ceremony will be free to use the social networking site during the event. However, according to the Herald Sun, they will be asked to switch off their phones as a "courtesy".
In 2009, The Chaser's Dominic Knight used Twitter to slam Gretel Killeen's on-stage performance. Comedian Wil Anderson also came under fire the same year after describing Killeen's presenting stint as "hell".
Journalist Catherine Deveny was fired after writing inappropriate tweets about 11-year-old conservationist Bindi Irwin at the 2010 Logie Awards. Anderson was again criticised for his nasty comments about various guests and performers.
That year, Dannii Minogue also announced that Home and Away actor Ray Meagher had won the Gold Logie, half an hour before it was broadcast on television.
Last year, Logie organisers sent out invitations to stars informing them that "mobiles will not be permitted" at the event. Breakfast television presenters David Koch and Ben Fordham ignored the rules and kept their Twitter followers updated on the Logie proceedings without giving away the winners.
