AGS Twitter Correspondents
March 16th, 2012
In an effort to strengthen our online geriatrics community, we invite all 2012 AGS Annual Scientific Meeting attendees to highlight meeting events using Twitter. We highly encourage all attendees to utilize the #AGS12 hashtag while tweeting during the meeting, to showcase research presentations, clinical updates, networking functions, and other topics relevant to your areas of interest. The hashtag makes it possible to form an instant community of colleagues who are following each other’s’ impressions and observations.
If you are new to Twitter, please see our Twitter Basics instructions to get started. It will take only a few minutes to get set up!
For those of you who are already a part of the Twitter community, please send your name and Twitter ID to firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up and commit to tweeting using hashtag #AGS12 during the meeting. By signing up, you will become an AGS Twitter Correspondent! Want to learn more about becoming a Twitter Correspondent? Please read our Q&A.
Interested in more on social media and geriatrics?
Attend “Facebook, Blogs, and Twitter: Using Social Media to Advance Geriatrics” at the AGS’ annual meeting, on May 3, from 2:45 P.M.-4:15 P.M. This interactive workshop will include presentations by individuals at the forefront of using social media to impact geriatrics, including New York Times blogger Paula Span, and Dr. Eric Widera from GeriPal.

After the meeting, we hope you will continue to tweet using #geriatrics to spread the word about geriatrics and talk to others in our community, as well as the larger healthcare community. Tweeting enables you to both learn from and to inform as many people as possible – all with only a few words and in a few minutes a day.
