Twitter is a valuable health resource for patients

The case for Twitter:

  1. Real time conversations
  2. Doctors and nurses on line
  3. Tweetchats (group discussions)
  4. Breaking health news

While I share articles and my posts on Twitter, I personally find it too much of a time sink being on line all the time, which one really has to be to use Twitter effectively. I find the specialized fora (e.g., The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society – LLS, link here), more helpful, deeper in knowledge, without the need to be online all the time).

Twitter is a valuable health resource for patients.
