Derek Muller (Pepperdine), The Twenty-two Law Reviews You Should Follow on Twitter:
While you could follow a pretty sizeable list of law reviews I've maintained on Twitter, there are a handful of law reviews that rise above the rest.
Last year, I listed the sixteen law reviews to follow on Twitter. I've modified the criteria slightly and updated it. ...
I looked at the flagship law reviews at the 105 law schools with a U.S. News & World Report peer score of 2.2 or higher. If I found their Twitter accounts, I included them. I then examined how many tweets they had, how many followers they had, and when their last tweet (not a retweet) took place. I then created a benchmark, a slightly stricter standard than last year (as another year has passed!): the law reviews "worth following" are those with at least 150 tweets, at least 150 followers, and at least one tweet (not a retweet or direct reply) in the last 30 days. I thought that would be a pretty minimal standard for level of engagement and recency of engagement. This 150/150/30 standard reduces the list to 22 accounts worth following.
