Only 6% of Lawyers Use Twitter; Only 4% of Clients Do


The big surprise in new survey data by Leader Networks shows that the vast majority of lawyers do not use Twitter or any other micro-blogging service. Only 6 percent of lawyers participate in microblogging (Twitter, etc.). What's worse, only 4% of in-house lawyers use Twitter, meaning that it's an empty fishing hole for new business, and a terrible choice for law firm marketing.

"Twitter has not yet caught on, especially among corporate counsel," states the second annual Networks for Counsel Survey. When asked, "What type of social media activities do you engage in professionally?" only 6% said they used Twitter, Plurk or other microblogging services. Even fewer in-house lawyers send tweets: 4%.
