10 Reasons Why I Use Twitter
1. I can contact fellow medical students and professors easily.
2. I get answers for my medicine-related questions from educators from around the world.
3. I get feedback easily so I always post there my ideas and projects.
4. I’ve recently started to read the Presentation Zen book and I really liked the foreword from Guy Kawasaki. Today I could contact him on Twitter. It feels good to be so close to the world.
6. I will graduate from medschool next September. That’s why I’m glad I can follow doctors and see what their everyday lives are like. This way, I can prepare myself for practicing medicine.
7. I cannot be up-to-date about the lives and careers of all of my friends and collegues by e-mail, but on Twitter it’s a piece of cake to know their important steps and milestones.
9. It serves as a universal chat service. I can contact anyone while flying in Second Life, blogging live or writing e-mails.
10. I can watch and follow interesting discussions focusing on health, web 2.0 or medicine. I feel I’m in the middle of an active group or community consisting of medical students, patients, doctors, nurses, healthcare lawyers and medical librarians.
