Tweets on Improving a Law Firm

Published on 11/07/2014 By Brian Inkster

… My last post was on what I said about improving a law firm at Reinvent Law London 2014. This post is on what others said on Twitter about my talk.

Why lawyers can take breaks from Twitter

Published on 01/12/2012 By Brian Inkster

… 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 […]

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 […]

… 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 […]
