That would be great please do!

I am one who finds that email and lists better serve my style of info
acquisition. At this point I have not really found social media to provide
the same functionality but am always wanting to have access to the richest

With social media becoming ever more popular, I'm personally curious where
folks are turning to most often when seeking accessibility-related
e-mail discussion lists, social media, or a combination of the two?

I've been a faithful e-mail discussion list user since I started using the
internet in the mid-90s. However, over the last few years, especially with
advent of Twitter, I'm finding some of the richer accessibility info is
communicated through social media. One of my concerns is that there may be a
gap that is growing in terms of accessibility info sharing based on which
channel folks use. Of course, who has the time to monitor and contribute to

This is something I've been reflecting upon for a bit, and thought I'd take
temperature check.

I'm asking a similar question on Twitter and LinkedIn as well. If folks are
interested, I can compile the answers I receive and share a high-level
in a few weeks.
