I thoroughly recommend SRLN’s recently launched Access to Justice Twitter Trends.
Originally developed for SRLN Working Group members, the weekly listing is now available to all through the new SRLN website (itself massively redesigned from the old one.)
Based on constant monitoring of Twitter and key sources, the weekly listing, in my opinion, is particularly useful for highlighting developments that the ATJ community, through our tweeting behavior, has already identified as of particular interest to all of us.
Looking through a week’s listing shows the huge range of innovative things happening. I used to think that I heard of, and was hopefully able to blog about, most of the important things happening. I no longer have that delusion, or even that goal!
Here, for example, is the most recent listing:

Of course, you can also get much of this through the SRLN Twitter feed, which is accessible on the SRLN website (bottom left).
