Enter the U.S. Supreme Court Tweet Contest

Via this post on Bob Ambrogi's LawSites, I discovered a creative contest being organized and promoted here by Daniel A. Schwartz's Connecticut Employment Law Blog. The challenge? "Summarize, comment on, or write something pithy" on any Supreme Court case in a single "tweet" on Twitter.

Schwartz offers a couple of examples:

* Brown v. Bd of Ed: Remember Plessy v. Ferguson? We don't know what we were thinking. Yes, separate schools are inherently unequal #cbftech

* What would Law & Order be without its most common phrase "You Have the Right to Remain Silent"? Thank you Miranda v. AZ #cbftech

Schwartz says the best Supreme Court-themed tweet will receive a modest prize of some kind, and that many of the top entries will be shared at the upcoming Connecticut Bar Foundation's Technology Symposium.

Here are the basic instructions to participate:

  • Your entry must be posted on Twitter.
  • Your entry on Twitter must include the hashtag of #cbftech, so that it can be tracked.
  • You may enter as many times as you'd like.
  • The deadline is midnight of April 2, 2010, and the winner will be announced at the symposium on April 9, 2010.

To see what has already been submitted in the contest under the #cbftech hashtag, including my own effort to tweet Bush v. Gore, check out the widget below.
