I’ve been on twitter for a few months now, but only recently have I started to take it ‘seriously’. To be fair you shouldn’t take twitter too seriously. When you post a message (a maximum of 140 characters) it’s actually called a tweet. Below are a selection of the tweets I’ve appreciated and posted myself (I’m JRBtrip). As you’ll see there are tweets covering a wide variety of subject areas. For me twitter allows a great way of keeping up to date, sharing in other people’s experiences and finding random serious and not so serious links.

JRBtrip Can you improve on this Q&A on the etiology of the popping when you click your joints http://tinyurl.com/9nnk8l

brownleader @JRBtrip discussed this with 3 GP’s who I work with and none of us could shed any light on the aetiology of popping/clicking joints

As you’ll see from the last two tweets that I asked a question (which can be viewed by all the people who ‘follow’ me) and brownleader responded. So twitter can be social as well.

If you’re tempted to get involved drop me a line and I’ll happily be your guide.
