Twitter as a Legal Research Source

Kim Nayyer, a law librarian at the University of Victoria, published an article today on Slaw.ca about Mining Social Media for Legal Research

The article describes a session in her advanced legal research and writing class that looked at Twitter as a legal research source.

It describes hashtags that are useful for following discussions about the legal profession, lists a number of good Twitter accounts about law, and describes searching Twitter feeds for law-related material.

The article is the first of two. The later article will look at using blogs for legal research and maintaining privacy in web activity.
