Abstract

Twitter may either be the greatest time-wasting prank ever played on the internet community or it may be the best thing since sliced bread. It's easy to make the first case if you read the public timeline for a few minutes. It's a bit harder to make the second, but I'll do my best to make it. Specifically, I'd like to take a stab at offering 140 health care uses for Twitter. Twitter's simplicity of design, speed of delivery and ability to connect two or more people around the world provides a powerful means of communication, idea-sharing and collaboration. There's potency in the ability to burst out 140 characters, including a shortened URI. Could this power have any use in healthcare? After all, for example, doctors and nurses share medical information, often short bursts of data (lab values, conditions, orders, etc.).
