2015 Day 2: Two Twitter Doves

number2-red-200On the second day of Christmas my true love sent to me, two Twitter doves…

On day two of our 12 Days of Christmas Posts we turn to Twitter. What would our year have looked like without Twitter? Our version of an alternate ending to It’s a Wonderful Life? Thankfully, our health information technology universe is just as it is, in part due to this list of great Tweeters. They kept us informed, engaged, and often amused throughout the year.

This year we continued to followed the hashtag. From conferences to HIT topics, we were following and highlighting the tweeters and what they were saying. Our regular post on www.HIEAnswers.net keeps you updated on trending hashtags to follow and Tweet Chats to consider.

Our newest “This Week in #HealthIT” debuted this year. We are using Storify to collect all the highlights for each week and share with our followers. Follow us on Storify and share our stories.
