I have a small handful of followers on Twitter—a few friends, some business contacts and adult site spammers. This is largely because I have not invested much time to my account. If someone follows me, I think, “Cool,” anticipating the day when I decide to do something with it.
That day has yet to arrive.
Professionally, Twitter is a great communication tool for your hospital. Sherman Health has done a few successful events through Twitter. We have more than 3,300 followers.
But with my own Twitter account, I don't know how to draw the line between my professional and personal life. If I were to follow a hysterical, inappropriately titled feed, would my followers be offended? What if a colleague doesn't like my tweets?
I just want to learn how to draw the line. Maybe it's time I ask the "Twittersphere" (whatever that means) for help with some of these questions.
What do you suggest I do? I'm still not sold on the idea, but let me know @joshmccolough.
