by Scott Edward Walker on June 27th, 2011

I’m using Twitter as a form of micro-blogging to share interesting blog posts, articles and podcasts relating to entrepreneurship and startups, M&A and legal issues.  If you missed this past week’s Twitter updates, below are my five most popular tweets (via bit.ly) and my blog-related tweets.  If you’d like to see all of my tweets (or an RSS feed of them), you can do so here.  Cheers, Scott
