By Dr Irwin Lim, Rheumatologist
It was over a beer. A long day at a scientific conference. I happened to mention that I tweet.
The scientist leaned over and shot me a look. The look.
The one I often get when I mention twitter.
Isn't that something young girls do to follow Lady Gaga?
I explained. About it's role in patient advocacy, in improving disease awareness, and how I use it to enhance my education.
The scientist remained unconvinced.
