From the International Myeloma Workshop in Washington, DC
Can you hear me now—out in the tweetosphere? That’s right, I’m tweeting live from the the International Myeloma Workshop. For the uninitiated, Twitter is a social networking/micro-blogging service that allows users to send and read “tweets,” text-based posts of up to 140 characters in length.
Yes, it’s hard to limit one’s thoughts to 140 characters (see my posts from today in the screen grab to see how much trouble I had). On the other hand, my followers know the meeting news almost as soon as I do. Basically you’re getting a headline from a presentation that will ultimately turn into a story in The Oncology Report and its sister publications (you may also read them on OncologyStat). The cool thing is…you’re getting it pretty much before everyone else.
