Are you active in Twitter? I thought I was until I had a lively conversation with physician, aging mobility advocate and Twitter evangelist Dr. Bernadette Keefe. As of this writing she stands at 77,800 tweets and counting – at over 100+ Tweets a day. How? Why? Listen to this episode of the Get Social Health podcast and learn how Bernadette has found an effective recipe to engaging in healthcare Tweet Chats, Conferences (where she is not in attendance) and one-on-one relationships. But get this – she is tracking multiple conversations, thought leaders and conversation threads with only a smart phone, an iPad and the Twitter platform.
