Twitter advice for doctors

Kevin MD Medical Weblog, January 7, 2010

Blogger Kevin Pho, MD, who currently has more than 18,000 Twitter followers, offers some common sense tips for physicians using the micro-blogging platform. "When using Twitter and Facebook (versus, say, a blog), it's easier than ever to hit the enter key and broadcast content to the world. It's essentially an instant message to the masses. With that in mind, any medical professional using these sites better be more careful than ever to protect patient privacy."
