NEW YORK (January 26, 2009) – LegalTech New York has added a panel discussion on the emerging social media and microblogging tool, Twitter, to its program agenda. The session, “What is Twitter and How Can I Use It?” will explore the potential use of Twitter by law firms and lawyers, and will take place February 2 at 3:00 PM ET in the West Grand Ballroom. Incisive Media’s upcoming LegalTech New York conference, the world’s largest and most prestigious legal technology conference and trade show, takes place February 2-4 at the Hilton Hotel in New York City.

The session will be moderated by Monica Bay, editor in chief of Incisive Media’s Law Technology News.

Topics to be covered by the panelists will include:
· What is Twitter and why should ‘I’ use it?
· At the end of the day, is Twitter the “ultimate time waster” or a “great tool”?
· From ‘huh?” to “a ha!” – one lawyer’s journey into the Twitterverse or “How I learned to stop worrying and love to Tweet!”
· Time to Tweet? How to use Twitter without losing time to Twitter.
· Lawyers, Twitter and client development.
· How lawyers are using Twitter for sharing and camaraderie.
“Savvy legal professionals realize that social networking tools can help their firms — and their own careers,” said Bay. “Twitter helps users quickly disseminate important information to key audiences and get input from targeted experts.”
