This time last year we published a list of the top 25 legal professionals to follow on Twitter. The post got a great response from people out there looking for experts and insiders to help them navigate the web and to point them in the direction of the best content. Now, 12 months on, we’ve gone back and updated the list. Enjoy!
Twitter is only as useful as the accounts you follow. Follow the right influencers in your sector, and you’ve got an instant source of the latest news, views and innovations from your niche. Do otherwise and, well, it quickly becomes a void.
But how to decide who to follow? Who are the leading voices on Twitter in the legal industry?
Look no further. Here at One Legal we’ve spent hours pouring over the best of Twitter to find you the top-25 legal professional Tweeters. These industry experts and insiders tweet all of the legal insights you need to stay in the know.
Here’s the full list, ranked by their number of followers. If you want to follow them all, why not subscribe to our Twitter list?
