ST. LOUIS (AP) - U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri will be spending the next few days on a St. Louis County jury hearing a civil case.

McCaskill, a Democrat, posted several messages on Twitter throughout the day Monday as she waited to find out if she would be selected for the jury.

The senator, a former prosecutor, said early in the day that she didn't expect to be chosen.

But after a day of tweeting about the television shows the jury pool was watching, what she wore and what was for lunch, the senator was surprised to be chosen for the jury.

McCaskill tweeted: "HOLY X@#(asterisk)! I am on the jury" and then stopped using social media.

Details of the case McCaskill was chosen for were not immediately available.
