Why nurses need Twitter
from The Huffington Post (opinion)
As scientists, early and mid-career academics, practicing nurses, and educators, we don't have a lot of free time. But we wouldn't be any of these things, nor be proficient at them, if we didn't keep in touch with the communities that undergrid everything we do. Twitter turns out to be the most powerful tool we have to do this. We each joined Twitter because we found ourselves ranting in front of our computers, over some scientific misconstruction in the media. We wanted a place to put these thoughts. We didn't set out to gather followers, and we didn't set out to position ourselves as the authority on anything — not even #nursing. It seems that there are a lot of folks on Twitter doing the same.
