@CoverageCounsel. The New York State Insurance Department recently entered the twittershere and is now tweeting @NYSInsuranceDep. The Department also has a Facebook page, if FB is your thing.
I know most of you don't tweet. Yet. Google Twitter and the first search result pronounces that "Twitter is without a doubt the best way to share and discover what is happening right now." I suppose that depends on with whom you ordinarily share what is happening right now. Coverage Counsel uses Twitter to microblog or republish these posts and case decisions I don't post, and to monitor and retweet insurance industry news. To do so, @CoverageCounsel currently follows these industry tweeters:
Best way I've found of discovering new tweeters to follow is to look at those I follow follow. If anyone knows of any other insurance industry tweeters Coverage Counsel should follow, please leave me the Twitter account name in a comment to this post.
If you're new to Twitter and the idea of making valuable use of multiple tweets seems unattainable or daunting to you, I recommend you download and use a Twitter desktop application or platform such as TweetDeck, Seesmic, or Twhirl to organize those you follow. Makes it much easier to keep everything straight by organizing your tweets into columns.
My law firm is now tweeting firm news. You can follow us @MuraStorm.
