Twittering for Health – PR Week Post #11
June 17, 2009
At least twice a week, someone asks me if I am a regular Twitter user because they have seen I have an account. Despite being followed by a grand total of three people (who are sadly gaining very little from my account at present), I have to say I am not.
Until this morning however I felt quite bad about this and was actually considering starting to act like a ‘Twit’ in earnest. That was before I read the results of OnePoll’s survey which said that Twitter was Britain’s least trustworthy site. Although it didn’t come as much of a surprise, given the number of people twittering about health, this is slightly worrying. It remind me about the time when the internet started all over again. Regulation, de-regulation, freedom of speech? I agree and disagree in equal measure.
I would be interested to know whether admission applications for City University London’s degree in twitter (http://www.prweek.com/uk/news/913674/degree-Twitter-offered-City-University-London/) drop off as a result.
