Judge Dillard is one of a small group of judges who have an active presence on social media. In this episode, he talks about why he joined Twitter, what he gets out of it, and whether it is a good thing. Plus, Microsoft is releasing practice-management software.

Judge Stephen Dillard (@JudgeDillard) joined Twitter shortly after he was appointed to the Court of Appeals of Georgia in 2010. Since then he has become one of just a few judges active on social media.

On today’s podcast, Judge Dillard talks about why he joined Twitter and whether judges ought to be using social media. There are additional challenges when judges use social media, but there may be benefits that make it worthwhile. We even discuss the sudden end of Judge Richard Kopf’s Hercules and the Umpire blog.
