Competitve intelligence in a Web 2.0 world

Greg Lambert over at the 3 Geeks and a Law Blog has written an interesting post on "Competitive intelligence in a Web 2.0 world" the post looks at some of the tools and techniques you can use to find people on Twitter.

In the post Greg uses the example of trying to find Lawyers who work in particular law firms, but there is absolutely no reason why Greg's techniques cant be applied more widely. For example Greg suggests using Tweepsearch to find people who fall within certain "categories" so for instance if you wanted to find all "Law Librarians" who were on Twitter you would run this search.

There is some really good advice in this post which could be applied to both the searches we do when we're looking for colleagues and potentially when we're undertaking legal research.
