Boom in law firm Twittering after Deacons, Blakes lead way
News | 21 April 2009 | Staff Reporter
Just hours after The New Lawyer reports Blake Dawson and Deacons are Twittering for clients, at least two more firms open Twitter accounts.
Following The New Lawyer’s report
yesterday on the increasing use of social networking site Twitter by law firms and lawyers alike, a host of firms followed suit. Just hours after The New Lawyer
reported that both Deacons and Blake Dawson were seeing some success and better access to clients via Twitter, both DLA Phillips Fox and Tresscox Lawyers opened new Twitter accounts. Meanwhile comments
on the story flowed in from readers, and one Twitterer said: “I would like to see some white shoe firms on here … that actually communicate with the public."
Tresscox declined to comment on why it started the site, and said it was early stages yet.
