Microblogging: Twitter and Friendfeed


Micro-blogging is the practice of sending brief text updates, photos, audio/video clips or links and make these public on a website and/or distributed to a private group of subscribers. These messages can be submitted by text messaging, instant messaging or e-mail.

Many micro-blogs provide short commentary about medical news, medical specialties or a company's products and services.

Webicina features two microblogging platforms including Twitter and Friendfeed.



Rheumatology on Twitter


Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that allows its users to send and read other users' updates, which are text-based posts of up to 140 characters in length.

In countries all around the world, people follow the sources most relevant to them and access information via Twitter as it happens—from breaking world news to updates from friends. I listed 10 reasons how doctors can use Twitter.
