tweeter.jpgFirst there was Facebook. Then Plaxio. Linked In. And now Twitter. Will it ever end?

How can we be that interested in someone we see once a year at seminar? Is this a sign that we need a life of our own, rather than eavesdropping in on the goings on of someone who feels significant enough to take the effort to leave 140 characters about what’s going on for them?

Perhaps. Maybe this is the personal, decentralized version of American Idol, Australian Idol, British Idol, etc.

Too soon to know for sure. But there’s something going on here. Ready to play? Joint the rest of us who are apparently self-absorbed enough to document it on line! I’m billesteb. Tweet me. If tweeting is a verb. I think it is. Or at least it is now! Let's see where this goes.

Jeremy McMinn:

Twitter is not necessarily a narcissistic tool, rather it can be a great way to network with other doctors, share useful information and create business. Rather than posting what you are doing, you should be joining conversations and provide value to your followers.

Yeah I don't get it. I guess I'll have to check it out to find out.
