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.
