Is Ambulance Chasing Coming to Twitter?

With a a growing number of lawyers using Twitter, it was only a matter of time before someone started tweeting for clients. Today, Kevin O'Keefe writes that he stumbled across a tweet seeking class members for a possible suit against Verizon Wireless. The tweet came from Laura Young , a PR professional whom O'Keefe says is apparently working on behalf of a Seattle plaintiffs firm. While it's not clear whether Young's tweet has attracted any prospective clients, it has attracted a negative reaction from disgusted Twitter-ers (some apparently lawyers themselves), who criticized the tactic of soliciting through Twitter.
