Old style professionals and social media – do they get it?

I have written in my tax diary that most accountants don’t get Twitter or other social media. Of course some do and are brilliant at using multiple platforms. I think most that do make a start don’t stay engaged long enough.

Do you think traditional professionals such as accountants and solicitors / lawyers do get social media and do you think that social media activities suit them? Are there other businesses that may find social media uncomfortable? I’d like to know.
