Legal Tweets Find a Place to Perch

We've talked up Twitter quite a bit here at Legal Blog Watch (see posts here, here and here), but legal media gadfly Kevin O'Keefe has launched a new tool called Lextweet that builds and unites the legal community on Twitter, and will perhaps help shed light on the online social networking tool for the many lawyers perplexed by or ignorant of Twitter.

Says O'Keefe:

Lextweet community members include lawyers as well as other professionals serving our legal profession. I have learned equally from marketing professionals, publishers, service providers, law students, and other professionals as from other lawyers during my time on Twitter. has had a section devoted to lawyers who Twitter for a little while now, but Lextweet appears to be a more comprehensive tool, with more information and opportunities for networking. It's still in beta mode, so users may run into bugs along the way, but O'Keefe says he and the developers are open to suggestions. The only problem I can see so far is that the site will incite a mad dash of legal Twitter users looking to up the number of their followers in an attempt to jump up the rankings on Lextweet... Did I mention you can follow Legal Blog Watch on Twitter?
