I use Twitter a lot. Interacting with thoughtful people is fun and I am learning a bunch. I especially love learning from the stats people and the philosophers.
But Twitter has downsides. The main one is that it’s ephemeral. You see something and think, gosh, that is great, but It’s hard to go back to find the thread.
Another downside of Twitter is that even though we can use more characters, it’s still hard to express your ideas.
Medicine has many caveats. Sometimes terse messages lead to misunderstandings.
So I am planning to jot things down on this blog more often.
I’ll tag things so I can go back to it. Fast writing is fun.
I’ll still use Twitter, and I hope you follow me there.
