If you’re at all vested in the social media scene, you probably understand the power of a Twitter hashtag. Whether it’s #thebestdayever, #ladygagasbirthday, or something a little more topic oriented – say #emailsoftware – hashtags enable us to share with the world our feelings, opinions, or insights on a particular item or circumstance. With this in mind, we thought it might be interesting to take a look at one of our favorite topics through the lens of its hashtag – #ediscovery.

We could throw the information at you in text, but that’s no fun! Instead, we’ve whipped up an informative graphic (or infographic) for all of you visual learners. The graphic highlights some of the milestones, influencers, and general popularity of the #ediscovery hashtag over a one-month time period (Feb 11 – March 11, 2012). Needless to say, electronic discovery is a hot topic! When you’ve had a look, you can embed this image on your site by using the code below it. Enjoy!
