Twitter from the O.R.

this seems to be a new trend.  I was reading this morning about a hospital in Dallas that provided live Twitter updates from the operating room.  Apparently a father donated his kidney to his son and the surgical procedure was reported via Twitter.  It sounds like it could be a very powerful marketing tool for the hospital and also provides the general public with specific information.  The hospital in question also maintains a FaceBook account, a blog and also has a channel on You Tube.  I think I will investigate further about the use of these social networking tools in medicine. I will post further on this topic in the near future.  Watch this space.
