Military justice and tech

From Haaretz's coverage of today's proceedings in the Elor Azaria manslaughter court-martial:
A Military Police investigator testified on Sunday morning at the trial of Elor Azaria, the soldier accused of killing a prone Palestinian assailant in Hebron, saying that after the shooting a prominent resident of Hebron suggested to Azaria's father that he take a good lawyer. 
According to the investigator, a phone call took place between Ofer Ohana, a paramedic who was at the scene of the shooting and a well-known figure in Hebron, and Charlie Azaria, the soldier's father. In a WhatsApp conversation between the two, the former suggested that they take a good lawyer.
Has WhatsApp figured in any other case, or is this a first?
