Top 50 Ways Lawyers are using twitter – can you add to the list
What are ‘Lawyers’ really using twitter for?
Twitter; we know it’s there and we use it (each of us differently) but what trends are forming and how is the profession using it for business and for ‘law’?

Marketers tell us how to ‘check our companies social media policy’ and how to ‘gain followers’ and how to ‘communicate’ but what exactly are lawyers using twitter for.
As there does not seem to be a definition of ‘lawyer’ available I use the term ‘Lawyer’ in the loosest form of the word gathering into this group law students, jurists, writers of legal commentary ,practitioners, solicitors, advocates and barristers together with legal publications and paralegals. In fact, anyone who works in the legal field.

  2. The democratic nature of Twitter and social media platforms should allow for easier access to law for the general public. Twitter isn’t so important for conducting business online but its potential is in how it can portray the nature of any business.
