An intro to Twitter for lawyers on the fence about trying it I started using Twitter the day the CA3blog site crashed. Twitter can be useful, and it can also be god-awful. Geeking out with a top conservative academic about circuit nominees, for example, or trading ideas about how to get better at oral argument.
At its best, Twitter is glorious. Twitter is how I imagine cocaine: So, can you enjoy useful Twitter while avoiding the god-awful? So, on that jolly note, here are a few thoughts on how to get started with Twitter, should you decide you want to.
Setting up your account. Use your real name unless you plan to just lurk or blow off steam.
Anonymous accounts tend to get ignored. Deciding who to follow. Search for people you respect. But, most of all: Step one, follow the people you want to follow you, and many will follow you back.
Step two, interact with some appellate-oriented folks who tweet a lot and have a lot of followers. Respond to their tweets, say something nice, disagree intelligently, whatever.
Step three—and this is the one that actually matters—be helpful and interesting. If you add value, people will find you. Twitter is public, dummy. Err on the side of concealing your inner dumbass. Bottom line, do I think you should start using Twitter?

In September of last year, I wrote something provocative here about a book by Judge Posner (“batshit crazy”) that got a bazillion hits from readers on Twitter, enough hits to bring down the blog’s website.
Until that day I’d been a proud Twitter hold-out, but crashing my humble blog got my attention. A valid e-mail address.
