The Times Law Top 10 Legal Tweeter

I'm proud to be included in The Times Law Top 10 of legal tweeters! What an honour.

The article is behind a paywall, so I had to pay a small fee to see my name in lights.  Why its time to open a corporate Twitter account celebrates the rise of Twitter amongst the legal profession and The Times has chosen to describe me as "a social media evangelist".  This headline characteristic is a reflection of how rapidly the emphasis of this very blog stepped away from a log of legal events affecting my industry to that of a lawyer experimenting with how lawyers can use social media to its best effect.  A year ago, very few people had heard of the in-house lawyer at Latitude, but now I receive a regular flow of professional opportunities which wouldn't have come my way previously and I'm routinely asked for comment on my new niche. I like to think I'm proof of what social media can do for you as a lawyer, so I'll continue to encourage you all to Play the Advantage it has to offer! 

The Times Law Top 10 roll of honour comprises:
  •  @Inner_TempleProvides the latest resolutions plus links to selected legal headlines from across the press
  •  @CharonqcThe very funny alter ego of Mike Semple Piggot, polymath legal blogger, writer and artist.
  •  @richardsusskindRenowned legal IT specialist, academic, writer and Times columnist
  • @davidallengreenInsightful media lawyer, blogger and legal correspondent for theNew Statesman
  •  @RichardMoorheadA legal academic and blogger specialising in writing about legal services and access to justice
  • @in_house_lawyerSocial media evangelist who also tweets regularly on issues around commercial and digital law
  •  @copyrightgirlOften responds directly to inquiries from followers on issues around copyright law and intellectual property
  •  @legalfuturesVery good on matters of compliance and competence for lawyers
  •  @LegalBizzleThe irreverent and personal thoughts of a lawyer, although on professional matters
  •  @TheNakedLawyerSolicitor-turned marketer often tweeting on how lawyers can get the most out of social media
Well done everyone who features.
