An online site has released a list of the top 50 law professors on Twitter. I am listed in the top 50 as is one of my colleagues, Dan Solove, at George Washington University. The listing is not ranked but it is an interesting array of academics.
The World Wide Learning site produced the list. I use Twitter to post the links to our articles and, on occasion, an interview that relates to a prior posting. We have roughly 5000 followers on Twitter which is a great way to reach out to our readers and regulars with news developments. You can join our merry band at this link.
The list does show how law faculty are incorporating the Internet and social media into their work. I incorporate this blog into my law classes on torts and constitutional law to give students an array of different cases in those areas — and an opportunity to discuss their implications. I still consider myself to be a technological chimp, however, with barely enough skill to function in the cyber world.
