I’m annotating her wonderful list!
1. To connect
I checked my Twitter profile page. I’m following 1,369 tweeps! I really should organize them into Twitter lists by interest but I haven’t. I like the serendipity of scanning my feed and finding nuggets of information. Probably not the most efficient way of doing things, but it works for me. I can write an entire blog post on the many people I have met on Twitter who have helped me in one way or another. For a teaching award I recently won, I’d like to acknowledge Dr. Charles Severance (@drchuck) and Deirdre Bonnycastle (@Bonnycastle). Dr. Chuck’s slide deck on a simple lecture recording setup and Deirdre’s medical education blog helped me a lot!
2. To engage
I join the #HealthXPh tweet chat every week. Here I am able to engage not only with healthcare professionals but also patients and patient advocates.
