By | December 1, 2012

… 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‘.

By | July 28, 2012

… 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

By | April 7, 2012

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.

… 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 […]

The Lawyer excludes Scotland and top Twegals from UK Legal Twitter list! #Twitteratigate2

By | October 11, 2011

… Last time I looked Scotland was still part of the UK. Not, however, in the eyes of The Lawyer whose media correspondent, David Allen Green, has totally excluded it in his article on ‘The UK’s Top Legal Tweeters in October 2011’. This article looks at “the current leading UK individual legal tweeters – the […]

UK Law Firms with Klout – A Clearer Picture

By | August 3, 2011

… Today The Lawyer published a top ten list and bottom ten list of law firms with Klout. It will be obvious from a quick glance at the list by any lawyer that uses social media regularly that it is flawed. A check of actual Klout scores demonstrates that this is indeed the case. One […]
