31 Twitter

32 Twitter itself contains limited info – Its value is as a link to definitive blogs, scholarly references, journal articles. It also provides almost worldwide instant contact with many of their authors Find people with similar interests – follow them. If their tweets are uninteresting and not pertinent to your interests –Unfollow them

33 Twitter Create a Profile

34 Twitter 101 –What is a Tweet? 120 characters - a message Can also contain a hashtag ie #UWEM Link to any internet address/webpage Photos

35 Twitter 101 Handle – your Twitter name. Starts with Followers – Those people who choose to receive your tweets Following – Those people whose tweets you choose to receive = Twitter feed Followers does not always equal Following Retweet- how your tweet can reach thousands How many can you truly follow?

36 If you think you are special/famous because you have Twitter followers – Just remember Justin Beiber has 51,000,000

37 Twitter 101 – Find someone with similar interests –See who they are following and start following

38 Twitter You can follow ANYONE –no “friending” You don’t have to use your name – you can be relatively anonymous But –Anyone can follow you It can totally be one way – you can follow hundreds and never post your own tweet Think before you post –it will be out there forever for anyone to see

39 Social Media Conduct Rules Never discuss patient specific issues Never be anonymous in any opinions or postings (anonymous lurking OK) Remember – EVERYONE is watching. Assume your posts will go on a billboard in front of your place of employment and your Mom will be able to read it You can be controversial, even edgy but BE NICE
