List of lawyers and law firm on Twitter

There are lists of lawyers, law firms and people tweeting about law on Twitter---but here's a list of lists:

  1. JDSupra 145 Lawyers (and Legal Professionals) to Follow on Twitter
  2. Online Best Top 100 Twitter Feeds for Law Students
  3. Securities Docket: BigLaw Lawyers on Twitter
  4. LawyerKM: Law Firms on Twitter - An Update
There is also WeFollow and it's law, lawyer and lawfirm tags, plus ExecTweets.
I'm sure to have missed one. If so, let me know on
Twitter or, better yet, FriendFeed.

Social media gems from TWITs

It certainly proved true for me at Dell.
Here's the full podcast TWIT#180 (the gem is from Pete Cashmore of Mashable's at 20:50).
