Please "Follow Me on Twitter"
Listening to Kevin O'Keefe at the Emory Symposium describe twittering as perhaps the most important branding tool since the advent of television (an obvious exaggeration, but point taken), I decided to finally start Twittering as a complement to blogging. I started this blog in 2005 as an alternative to pointless, incessant barking, and I've tried to maintain it as a resource of substance, not triviality. Still, it's clear there's a definite place for barking in bankruptcy, and that's where Twitter, with its 140 character limit, fits in. So, last Thursday, I started twittering. Here are my latest two posts:
- A comment on joblessness and the quiet flu season.
- A link to the Tribune bondholders' complaint against JPM, C, BARC, BAC, and MS for equitable subordination, claims disallowance, and constructive trust.
The past 4 years of blogging have generated over 500,000 page views. Today I have just 21 followers on Twitter, but you've got to start somewhere. Those interested in hearing me bark on bankruptcy should click here and "Follow Me on Twitter." Here's the RSS Feed link to my Twitter posts.
Thanks for reading and following!

Keep plugging away on Twitter. It can definitely be beneficial. The key is to find relevant people to follow and they generally follow you back. Also, posting interesting Tweets with links is a good way to get people to pay attention. I'm a San Diego bankruptcy lawyer and I've had pretty good success so far.
