On Monday, I did a presentation at LegalTech on a panel called “What is Twitter and How Can I Use It?” along with Kevin O’Keefe & Matthew Homann.Â As you can probably tell from the name of the conference, this session was aimed at informing lawyers (and people in the legal profession) on how they could effectively use Twitter.Â Here’s my entire PowerPoint presentation:
As I have done in the past with another Twitter presentation, I called on users of Twitter to actually show how Twitter works.Â By asking these three questions, I got over 135 responses in ~30 minutes:
- How would you explain Twitter (in 140 characters or less)?
- What is your *one* MUST have Twitter tool?
- How could a lawyer or someone in the legal field use Twitter effectively?
The answers that I received were all excellent and I’d like to thank the following folks for their help:
