Selection of My Twitter Favorites, Edition 8

Twitter is a microblogging service where people answer the question "What are you doing?" via 140-character messages from their cellphone, laptop or desktop. You can select the messages you find useful, amusing, or both. Here is the 8th edition of My Twitter Favorites (the oldest post is at the bottom, the newest at the top):

  1. Yes, I think it is useful and educational too but ONLY if you follow the accounts that twit about the topics you are really interested in, otherwise it's really a waste of time.
    Is there an archive or something about medical twitter accounts? If there is not already I've just created a group on ning: http://medtweets.ning.com . Maybe it could help to get in touch with new interesting accounts and talk about the phenomena. Al

    Thank you for your effort. There is already a Twitter healthcare group you may want to check out.
