Back in October, I had an interesting experience by being interviewed as part of the “22 Tweets” project. Its creator, Lance Godard, describes the project in this way: “Real-time Twitter interviews with practicing lawyers who tweet.” The interview went out live, tweet by tweet, in a series of 22 tweets, over Twitter, the 140-character internet blogging service. People could follow it on Twitter, by following @22Twts and me at @AndrewMcRoberts, or by following the hashtag #22Twts on www.Twitter.com. I heard that folks across the country read the tweets, perhaps even internationally. Wow. Big stuff for a “local” government lawyer!

Note was made of the event on the Sands Anderson Marks & Miller website, of course. The full interview is archived at the 22 Tweets website at this link: http://22tweets.com/index.php/2009/10/22/andrewmcroberts/

I have often been interviewed by the press as a long-time local government attorney, of course. But these interviews were typically about my client localities, their elected officials or staff and their activities. This interview was one of only a few I can remember about me. A little scary, actually, but fun. I recommend it to other lawyers who tweet.
