Clients are on Twitter, and they are talking about their legal problems — and their lawyers. Marketing consultants say this is why you need to be on Twitter yourself. I’m not so sure.

Let’s take a look at what your clients are actually saying about you, first.

1. Predictably, complaining about you

2. And calling you names

3. Discussing your own legal problems

4. Contemplating your fee

5. Not paying you

6. On their way to pay you!

7. I’ll be honest, though, I think you are charging a little much

8. Nice things

9. Bragging about you, in fact

10. Talking about how nice you look — and your fancy car

11. Complimenting your musical taste

12. Enjoying your emails

13. Sending around your (admittedly, pretty awesome) holiday cards

14. Planning to get you high

15. Discussing plans to hire you again shortly

See what else people are saying about their lawyers on Twitter.
