Jodi Arias has been busy sending messages to tweet while awaiting a verdict from the jury currently deliberating her fate. The woman accused of the brutal murder of Travis Alexander admitted to considering suicide and said that she would have taken a plea deal a long time ago to avoid court.

"I would have signed a plea years ago to avoid this disaster, but I was refused a plea as the State and the family refused to settle. I wanted so much to avoid trial but the State forced it. My only other option was suicide and, well..." Arias tweeted via her friend, Donavan Bering. Bering has been operating the account @Jodinarias since Arias has been behind bars, posting the messages that Arias tells her to.

"She'll call and say, 'I have a quote.' We'll talk about it. Sometimes she says, 'Let's tweet.' And then she'd say, 'No, let's not do it,'" Bering told Fox 10 News last month.

Usually Arias posts information about her artwork, which is for sale online, but she has also used the account to air her feelings about prosecutor Juan Martinez and commentator Nancy Grace, whom she often criticizes.

"N. DisGrace has set back the cause of all women who have survived domestic violence," Arias tweeted. "Her circus makes a mockery of something very serious."

Grace has followed the case from the very beginning and has maintained that Arias deserves the death penalty, which is a real option if the jury finds her guilty of the first-degree murder of Alexander.

Arias' trial has become as famous as that of Casey Anthony and O.J. Simpson, full of twists and turns and revelations about Arias' romance with Alexander. She is accused of stabbing him 29 times, slitting his throat, and shooting him in the head. Arias admitted to shooting Alexander during the trial but said she couldn't remember committing the other acts.

The jury is still deliberating at this time.
