Twitter for Lawyers: Confidentiality, Advertising, and What to Post [LGE 029]



Social media can be a great place to connect with colleagues and grow your law practice, when used correctly. For many lawyers, however, the thought of posting and engaging on social media platforms generates as much fear as it does questions. In this episode, I’m focusing specifically on Twitter and sharing a few important ways you can and should be using the platform. My hope is that I address some of the fears and questions you might have about using this platform.

  • What is confidential information and what isn’t?
  • Why you shouldn’t use your Twitter account as an advertisement
