Dr. Sloan is on Twitter

Whatever the social and psychological consequences may be, I’ve signed up for Twitter today. It’s taken me a while to decide to do this because somehow I associate the facility with kids trying to keep track of one another on their smart phones, and people obsessed with celebrities.

I discover that some of the people (health and care of the elderly journalists, mostly) I elected to “follow” are incredibly prolific, “Tweeting” at least once an hour and bouncing other people’s tweets out to all their followers. I had to delete a couple of them.

Anyway, I’m hoping one of the outcomes of this will be a little more contact with some of the people interested in better care for old people at home, and a chance to reach out more effectively with some of what I’ve got to say myself.

My handle is “drjohnsloan”…
