Hi again, y'all - I thought I'd follow up by mentioning some 
of the people I follow and how I found them.  Basically, I 
started out by following a couple of law librarian 
technology leaders such as Jim Milles and Sarah Glassmeyer

I looked to see who they were following and who was 
following them, and followed who I thought was interesting.  
Then folks started compiling directories (I've put the links 
to them below).  Now I get global legal news, links to legal 
resources, info about new legal publications and databases, 
etc. from all the folks I follow.

If you practice law, I suggest following @kevinokeefe and 
@bobambrogi to start with.  If you're a law student, @[log in to unmask]  
You can find other "top" Twitterers at the Legal Birds 

Here are some of the folks I follow, plus directories. I 
also follow general international news sources on Twitter.
