Thanks to social media, no idle thought seems to be left undocumented nowadays.

So, in our age of information overload, it’s a relief to learn that some top law firms have opted out of the medium of Twitter altogether. According to internet marketing company Coldlime, 11 of the top-100 have no Twitter accounts. 

Of those to have embraced the social media revolution with gusto, Irwin Mitchell has the most followers (16,300) followed by DLA Piper (15,819) and Allen & Overy (15,764). Obiter does not like to brag, but the Gazette is just shy of 40,000.
