Social Media

Posted On: By Postali

Running a successful law practice is about much more than being an excellent attorney. A law firm is a business, and those who stay informed on trends in legal marketing, business development, and technology are primed to run their practice more efficiently.

Law firms are competitive businesses. To stay successful, you need to stay informed. The industry trends often move at lightning speed, and you want to be ahead of things so that your business can grow and develop. Twitter is a great place for busy attorneys to stay informed.

Many thought leaders in the legal industry are eager and willing to share their knowledge in digestible, 280-character tweets that lawyers on-the-go can follow.

Additionally, establishing a presence on Twitter can be an effective component of your law firm’s social media marketing. In addition to posting your firm’s own content, part of social media marketing entails engaging with other accounts. This shows potential clients that you are an active participant in conversations that affect your practice area and local community.

We’ve rounded up some of the best Twitter accounts for lawyers (in no particular order). To save you even more time, we’ve also added all of these accounts to a Twitter List that you can follow with one click. (You can use some of the time you’ll save to follow Postali on Twitter as well.)

Think Local

It’s equally important to stay informed and connected to your local community on Twitter. While we can’t provide specific Twitter accounts, here are some thought-starters for accounts to consider following:

  • Your State Bar Association
  • Local newspapers and reporters
  • Neighboring businesses
  • If your law firm is involved in the community, be sure to follow the Twitter accounts of the local organizations that you help support.
