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 (http://twitter.com/jmilles, http://twitter.com/sglassmeyer). 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 website: http://www.legalbirds.com/ Here are some of the folks I follow, plus directories. I also follow general international news sources on Twitter.
