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.
