Legalish Topic “Follows” On Twitter

This is part two of a post started earlier on how I gather legal/news information. Part one is here regarding the blogs I have on RSS feed.

I am right at the 60 day mark of using Twitter. What a crazy, fun, informative community. Twitter is an amazing resource for staying current on breaking news issues that relate to your practice. Many bloggers will feed there blogs directly to their Twitter posts. Other Twitter users do not maintain blogs, but aggregate news stories and post those on Twitter.

There is no way to list all the folks I follow and learn from each day, but here are a few of my tweeps:

http://twitter.com/copyrightlaw  This is from law Professor Michael Scott. He provides a roundup of daily copyright news.

http://twitter.com/arstechnica All things arts, tech, digital and IP related.

http://twitter.com/taxtweet  Updates on tax issues from a Texas tax attorney

http://twitter.com/corporette  A fashion and lifestyle blog for overachieving chicks. Hey, got a have a little fun in my day.

http://twitter.com/SCartierLiebel  Great info on building a solo law practice.

http://twitter.com/vpynchon Attorney Victoria Pynchon is a must follow for ADR topics. She feeds two of her blogs into this link.

http://twitter.com/kevinokeefe  If you are building or supporting a law practice today, you need to be following Kevin O’Keefe. Kevin founded LexBlog and has incredible insight into how to use today’s technology to grow your business.

http://twitter.com/artistshouse  Great resource for launching and building your music business brand.

http://twitter.com/patentlyo  I’m not a patent attorney, but if you are you need to be following Dennis Crouch.

http://twitter.com/GrantGriffiths  Grant Griffiths provides insight on designing blogs and use of other social media to build your brand.

Again, this is not an exhaustive list. Enjoy and learn something new today.

    Thanks for the shout out Tamera! Were it not for generous blogger-twitters like yourself, I’d have to give up Twitter (my personal water cooler) as the “ridiculous time suck” my husband cannot help asserting it must be (without evidentiary support I might add). Aside from an unbelievable wealth of linked information provided by the people in “our” network, unlike blogging, “tweeting” connects people on a far deeper personal level than blogging ever could. I have been amazed by the incredible generosity in time, referrals, and advice that the incredibly high-level professionals in our network share freely, even eagerly, with the rest of us. I don’t know where Twitter is going (and I admit I’m abashed to talk about it at all with anyone who doesn’t “tweet” – sheesh) but so far I’m happy to have boarded the train.

    Thank you so much for including me in this post. It is an honor.

    Thanks for the mention. Honored to be in such esteemed company. One quick note: I’m not a lawyer, but a journalist who’s been writing about taxes for a decade now.
