AllergyNotes Now back to the original idea -- let's start Medical Twitter Awards 2008 or 2009.

AllergyNotes Medgadget is doing a good job ensuring the integrity of the award process and probably should be the ones involved in the Twitter awards.
AllergyNotes Medgadget's focus on blogs is fine but they are missing a huge part of the picture if they don't include Twitter in the future editions.
AllergyNotes Twitter is easy. Many doctors/students/nurses, etc. don't have time, desire or discipline to blog but are happy micro-bloggers on Twitter.

AllergyNotes Medgadget Annual Medical Weblog Awards is an excellent initiative, now we need the same for Twitter.
