Mini-guide to Twitter: Why should I join?

What is Twitter? 

It’s a social network where people can send messages of a maximum of 140 characters in real time. It was created in 2006, and it has grown tremendously ever since. When it was first created the messages, called tweets, were about what people were doing in real time. Nowadays people, or “tweeple” as they are called on Twitter, are tweeting about any subject in the world.

Here’s is detailed guide on how to use Twitter by Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Slide 35 is a 7:47 minute video where Dr. Chretien, an internist, is interviewed about the use of social media.

Sort me! Paucis Verbis cards now catalogued

After much recent feedback on the poll about the Paucis Verbis cards (thanks to all who responded!), I see trends:
  • Several have commented that it is getting increasingly difficult to find a card that they are searching for. There are over 100 cards now! So, I managed to figure out how to embed a Google Doc spreadsheet into the blog, which now allows you to sort and search for particular cards (minor HTML coding necessary). This list will permanently live on the Paucis Verbis page.
