Twitterbox Update:  Use to Locate Twitterers in Your Marketing or Professional Niche

I’m new to the Internet networking site,, which allows users to share (or “tweet”) “microblog” updates of 140 characters or less about their current activities or thoughts, personal or professional. But I have to say that for a person who admittedly “pooh-poohed” the idea of the “constant comment”, I fall more in love with Twitter every day – especially as an up-to-the-second news resource. (I only wish that the character limit for usernames wasn’t so short; I could have been the “PuckishParalegal” or “PuncVigilante” in a more verbose world.)

However, I was initially taken aback by the challenge of finding Twitterers that I’d like to follow (or get to know much better). In addition to being a news hound, I want to meet legal professionals all over the country who know stuff that I don’t (which is a lot). I am especially interested in the ones who are marketing themselves, their law firm or their business via Twitter. Entering “paralegal” into Twitter’s people search feature only yields six results. Going to the very cool Twitter search site,, and entering “paralegal” yielded 67 results – much better! I identified at least a dozen paralegals that appear to be using Twitter to discuss marketing, technology and their careers. In addition to using to search for kindred souls, get your own Twitterer profile listed as well and help others find you!
