Plaintiffs’ law firms are already using YouTube to find class members so it should not be surprising, I guess, that at least one firm is now using Twitter for that purpose. Kevin O’Keefe of LexBlog has this interesting post in which he reports that:
Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro, a pretty good plaintiffs’ firm here in Seattle, apparently has its PR person, Laura Young of Firmani + Associates Inc., out twittering to find putative class members for a possible class action law suit versus Verizon Wireless.
It does not seem to be too much of a stretch to assume that this tactic will soon be used in securities class actions, as well. We’ll be on the lookout now that we, too, are on Twitter.
