Posted by on 05/01/2014 at 9:44 am

… A couple of days ago I looked back to what happened in 2013. Today I will look forward to what might happen in 2014. I first made legal IT predictions in 2011 on this blog. I will for 2014 follow the same format and topics (with perhaps some extra ones thrown in at the end). […]

Elizabeth Miles: A True Twitter Friend (2009 – 2013)

Posted by on 16/04/2013 at 9:50 am

… I was shocked and deeply saddened to hear yesterday morning that Elizabeth Miles had passed away over the weekend. Elizabeth was one of my very early connections on Twitter – way back in the pioneering days of 2009. She was an active participant in the Virtual Twitter Parties organised by Chris Sherliker and when those turned […]

… On 1 January 2011, The Time Blawg materialised. One year ago I looked back at the first year of The Time Blawg – One Year On. Today I will look back at what went on during the second year of The Time Blawg with specific reference to Social Media and give my thoughts on […]

Why lawyers can take breaks from Twitter

Posted by on 01/12/2012 at 5:01 pm

… My last post on ‘Tweeting less but meeting more‘ has generated some debate with Brian John Spencer posting ‘A letter to Inksters: just because it’s winter it doesn’t mean that you can put your Twitter into hibernation‘. This is an interesting topic and one worthy of some debate and consideration. I do, however, think […]

Tweeting less but meeting more

Posted by on 25/11/2012 at 11:59 pm

… Brian John Spencer, who has an interesting blog on Twitter for Law Firms, tweeted me the other day to ask:- Hey @brianinkster why’s @inksters gone quiet for so long!? #SMconsisteny — Brian John Spencer (@brianjohnspencr) November 22, 2012 I replied:- @brianinkster @inksters cool, didn’t mean to be critical just you guys have long been a […]

Top Lawyer to Follow has only tweeted three times in two and a half years!

Posted by on 28/07/2012 at 8:32 pm

… Readers of this blog will be aware that I am often very critical of top legal Twitter lists. The Lawyer will be relieved that this latest post does not arise from a list promoted by them (see Law Firm Twitteratigate – The Whole Story and The Lawyer excludes Scotland and top Twegals from UK […]

100,000 Legal Tweets

Posted by on 07/04/2012 at 9:18 pm

This past week @CharonQC achieved a major Twegal (or Tweeting Legal for those that prefer) milestone (although he joked with Antonin Pribetic that it was perhaps a millstone) when he tweeted his 100,000th tweet. I thought this event should not go undocumented. Here it is:- Those that know Charon QC will know that it is […]

#Lex2012Tweetup: The First Anniversary Twegals Tweetup

Posted by on 27/03/2012 at 10:05 pm

… In 4 weeks time (Tuesday 24 April 2012) Linda Cheung and I will reunite to co-host the Lex 2012 Tweetup. Large London #TwegalTweetups or #TweetingLegals as they have become known (I think for those who are adverse to the term Twegals – bring it back I say!) started life over a year ago when […]

Lawyers cannot hide on Twitter

Posted by on 29/01/2012 at 11:49 pm

… Recent headlines in the The Mail Online and The Telegraph suggested that a (now ex) Barrister (who tweets as @Geeklawyer) had been struck off for inappropriate tweeting. Delve a little deeper and he was in fact fined £2,500 by the Bar Standards Board (BSB) for his tweeting and, put simply, disbarred for his conduct […]

Posted by on 23/12/2011 at 8:26 am

… Jon Harman (@colmmu) has been keeping fellow Twegals amused over the past few months with his Twitter Follow Friday (#FF) Experiment. From writing in the sand on a beach in Norway to filming a drive from his home, Jon has made #FF a whole new experience both for himself and the subjects of his […]
