Nancy Grace, like most of the nation, was thrilled when it was announced that Jodi Arias was found guilty of first-degree murder in the Travis Alexander trial.

The HLN/CNN television host has been closely following the trial, making it clear that she believe Arias should behind bars for murdering Alexander.

The moment it was announced that the 32-year-old photographer was found guilty, Grace took to Twitter to share her approval over the Arias verdict.

Her first post came the moment the verdict was read around 5 p.m. EDT:

“The verdict is in: #JodiArias GUILTY of 1st degree murder.”

The HLN host, arguably best known for her extensive coverage of the Casey Anthony trial and her “Tot Mom” nickname, then posted about a dozen more tweets; and it doesn’t seem like she’s going to stop expressing her opinion about the verdict via social media anytime soon.

“I don't see any type of apology coming out of #JodiArias' mouth if she gets in front of the jury in the coming days,” was one of her latest posts.

Arias once said a jury would never convict her, and it seems unlikely Alexander’s family will ever hear an apology out of her.

The convicted killer, who considers herself a victim of domestic violence, has been running a Twitter account from jail with the help of a friend. She referred to the former prosecutor as “Nancy DisGrace” before the jury’s decision.

“N. DisGrace has set back the cause of all women who have survived domestic violence. Her circus makes a mockery of something very serious,” Arias wrote on Monday.

Grace’s overt coverage of the case garnered attention from other Twitter users who commented on how the host is getting more attention then the murderess.

@questlove2h wrote, “Crazy that Nancy Grace's reaction to Jodi Arias is trending instead of the actual Jodi Arias.”

“I wish CNN/HLN had a monitor of Nancy Grace's heart rate like they have of voters during debates,” @BuzzFeedAndrew2h commented on her response.

‏@indecision2h joked, “Nancy Grace is like a nerd who camps out for Star Wars but with murder trials.”

Arias murdered Alexander in his Arizona home on June 4, 2008. The two were intimate together, taking naked pictures, before Arias turned and shot her ex-lover in the forehead, stabbed him 27 times and slit his throat from ear to ear.
