Thank you for visiting the Family Law Lawyer Tech & Practice blog. My name is John Harding. I am a family law lawyer practicing in Northern California. Long ago I realized that I could practice law more effectively and more efficiently (i.e., better and easier) by availing myself of the technological tools that are out there. I also learned that a successful law practice requires successful marketing. Hardware and software working together make me a better lawyer, and make my life easier. Marketing helps to bring in the business necessary for professional survival. By this blog I hope to share the tips, tricks, and technology that I have learned about so that others may benefit!

Twitter Use/Growth Down

I am an unabashed pundit when it comes to relying on twitter as an actual business tool. I relish mentioning twitter with less than absolute frenzied adoration just because I am thrilled by the foamy, vitriolic, crazed responses twitter criticisms draw from the twitter jihad (anyone remember the savage attacks upon Larry Bodine when he dared to question the relevancy of twitter as a marketing tool?). Here is my hard data supporting my case.

Hubspot.com has just released its 2010 State of the Twittersphere report. The report indicates that twitter growth has fallen from a high of 13% in March of 2009 to 3.5% in October, 2009. In all due fairness, the report also indicates that those people still on board with twitter are amplifying their use of the technology. In summary, fewer people are using twitter; but those who do use it are using it more aggressively.

Don't believe me? Take a look at the report. I'm just reporting the findings.

Now, let the whining from the twitter community begin!

I enjoyed the absolute frenzied foamy, vitriolic, crazed responses from Twitter aficionados as much as you did.

I don't need to defend myself. I just let the facts speak for themselves. See "State of the Twittersphere: a Picture of Decline" at http://bit.ly/7yfIKI.
