@JSNMA: Medical Tweets, is this our #future?

The personal, business, and educational uses of social media have impressively blossomed over the last decade. Social networking sites, such as Facebook and Twitter, are now household names despite their recent debuts. Facebook, launched in 2004, and Twitter, launched in 2006, have even managed to either spawn their own verbs (facebooking) or repurpose others (tweeting). Both sites began as a way to build and nurture friendships, but have evolved into great advertising tools for businesses, and continue to evolve as potential enhancers to the educational process. As the tools available to diversify and expand the way education reaches students of all levels, medical school educators are learning to use these tools to their advantage.
