  • Really? What are they doing on there? What of meaning can a law firm possibly have to say in 140 characters?

  • "Despite having zero tweets Norton Rose’s account, which ranked number 10, scored 88 points in the survey, only two points below Olwsang, which has posted over 100 tweets."
    Did Norton Rose pay to get included in this survey or something? How on earth did they manage to come out over Olswang and the rest? Can someone from Intendance explain?

  • This survey has no credibility. If Norton Rose can appear in the table at all depsite having no tweets then the methodology has misunderstood Twitter completely. Effective Twitter accounts are those that engage with their community by, in the first instance, tweeting - and also retweeting, replying and using hashtags.
    Conduct a search on Norton Rose's Twitter account in any respected engine that measures Twitter effectiveness or influence (eg, Tweetreach, Klout) and you'll find a very low score.
    Norton Rose will not be picking up any business from having a dead account, I assure you.
    What ridiculous metrics, Intendance. It's like judging a green grocer by what shoes she wears.

  • So, the head of M&A Paris is leaving and further eruptions to come, but a phantastic success on the twitter front - just pitiful

    There was a time when New York law firms were judged by the shoes their lawyers wore.
    Besides, my local greengrocer works barefoot, and therefore does not receive my custom. The freak.

  • Well, congratulations on winning a meaningless Twitter competition.

    Their website, on the other hand, is appalling.

  • such a shame that so many firms bother to go to the trouble to personalise their accounts (allen & overy's is particularly spiffy) but are so ineffective at utilising twitter to its full potential. there are plenty of lawyers on twitter engaging with other tweeters, making for intelligent and interesting discussion most of the time. why top law firms fail to understand how to interact is beyond me...

  • Is this a joke? There are numerous UK lawyers on twitter who according to the authoritative klout.com website are more influential than Allen & Overy who have a current klout score of 30.

    For example, such legal twitter rock stars as @london_law_firm @brianinkster and @jonathanlea have klout scores of 54, 54 and 51 respectively.

  • Shameless bit of self-promotion from Jonathan 'self described legal twitter rock star' Lea above there.
