Yeah, I use Twitter. It is a terrific medium. I get to speak to specialists in their field around the world every day of the week. These include Aussie Emergency Physicians that work at hospitals that take our patients.
But the best use of it I have seen was by Mr Onthemoon over the Christmas period. I am unsure if he was trying to entice followers, perhaps it was for altruistic reasons, but he went crazy and made 90 avatars in 90 hours. He has even written about his extravaganztacular: My twitter avatar adventure meltdown extravaganztacular to gain cheap publicity. You know him as the cartoonist at Crikey with FirstDogOnTheMoon
It started as this white board (me upper right corner) and ended up as this along with 16 million new followers (his words).
If you like what you have seen of him so far take a look here.
Oh, you might have noticed I received an avatar. We are still discussing which one is me.
And this is going in as a Pleasant Sunday Afternoon though it is Thursday. That’s the good thing about having your own blog!
