LTNY 2009: Twitter Topples Electronic Discovery

It's official: Twitter has de-throned "electronic discovery" as the most buzzworthy term at LegalTech. While the ratio of EDD vendors at the show is still extremely high, much of the talk surrounding the show revolves around Twitter and its uses and implications for lawyers.

The Monday afternoon panel, "What Is Twitter and How Can I Use It?," generated a flood of tweets from audience members, panelists and online spectators thousands of miles away, all at the same time. Two hours after the panel ended, there were roughly 320 posts pertaining to the discussion, which helped make #LTNY -- the hash tag used to signify that a tweet is related to LegalTech New York -- the number 6 most common term on Twitter for a bit.

The panel's discussion, led by Law Technology News editor Monica Bay, LexBlog's Kevin O'Keefe, Matt Homan of Lex Think and 10e20 president Chris Winfield, covered the most practical issues raised by a room full of lawyers: How does Twitter make money? What copyright issues do we have to worry about on Twitter? How is Twitter being used to monitor real-time court proceedings?
