“Twitter may either be the greatest time wasting prank ever played on the internet community – or- it may be the best thing since sliced bread. It’s easy to make the first case if you read the public time-line for a few minutes. It’s a bit harder to make the second, but I’ll do my best to make it. Specifically, I’d like to take a stab at offering 140 health care uses for Twitter. Twitter’s simplicity of design, speed of delivery and ability to connect two or more people around the world provides a powerful means of communication, idea sharing and collaboration. There’s potency in the ability to burst out 140 characters, including a shortened URI. Could this power have any use in healthcare? After all, for example, doctors and nurses.”

Docs and Social Media: Don’t ‘Friend’ Your Patients
Physicians should not “friend” or contact patients through personal social media, or text for medical interactions, U.S. physician groups advise.
Why? The American College of Physicians and Federation of State Medical Boards encourages doctors to always “pause before posting” and not “friend” patients in policy paper “Online Medical Professionalism: Patient and Public Relationships,” published in the Annals of Internal Medicine.
