Survey: Why do you use Twitter?

Survey: Why do you use Twitter?

I recently got a comment on the blog asking why people need to use Twitter, if they’re already following blogs. I thought I would open this up to the blogosphere.

I personally use my Twitter account (@M_Lin) for a variety of reasons:

  • I tweet the link to my blog whenever there is a new post (I just tweeted a link to this post!)
  • Scan quick, real-time information from clinicians I trust
  • Know “what’s hot” in EM, medical education, and education technologies
  • Learn of new blogs and websites which I didn’t know about
  • Quickly check tweets on-the-fly on my iPhone during downtimes
  • Make new friends who I then meet in person at EM conferences!

Please comment below and include your Twitter name, if possible.  I’d love to know why (or why you don’t) use Twitter.
