I just would like to point out that there are some lawyers who have mastered the practice aspect and the marketing aspect of their particular field; okay, only one, me. But anyway, on one hand I agree with Tabbebaum, any lawyer who really thinks he might get a potential client from Twitter is delusional. On the other hand, I also think some forms of Social Media can be useful, but not for the reasons you think. I have had many friends call me because they saw my name in a Facebook friend feed and would not have otherwise known I practiced criminal law. But with that said, not one person has ever contacted me through my Facebook Business Profile. But for the most part, Tannebaum is correct. Most of these Social Media lawyers are washed up couldn't make a buck lawyers, who sell fish oil. And the only people who pay attention to them are other washed up social media wannabees; and Tannebaum, who hates them.

Esquire Rule No. 1,033: If your lawyer's e-mail address ends in hotmail.com, gmail.com, or yahoo.com, find a new lawyer.
