I limited the list to Twitter accounts that mostly stay on topic: streaming legal news (broadly defined) and often linking to just one primary source.

The first is a terrific example of a trusted, mainstream source embracing new technology (ABA Journal); many others illustrate one type of valuable relationship to emerge between Twitter and blogging (LexMonitor, pointoflaw, overlawyered, technola, etc.).

Several of the feeds were recently created by us at JD Supra: we stream documents uploaded onto the site in a variety of channels, including Twitter.

My other list – Lawyers and Legal Professionals to Follow on Twitter – includes a healthy mix of legal bloggers who also happen to feature legal news and announce new posts on their wide-ranging Twitter streams. I think you should follow those people, too – but this, above, is a different list.

I enjoy the blend of personal and professional that plays itself out on Twitter; again, for this list I was interested in compiling something different. On-topic sources for legal news.
