I like new technology, especially information technology. Bright Eyes isn’t the only eyecare facility in Tampa Bay that has a Facebook account, but we were the first. I now regularly “tweet” (write posts on Twitter) under the Twitter screen name “BrightEyesTampa” for the office. I connect with numerous eye and health experts on Twitter from around the globe to bring you the most up to date and cutting edge information in eye and health care news.
When you follow @BrightEyesTampa on Twitter you will always find interesting “tweets” about eye health care, eye health tips, inspiring quotes, health news, any new blog posts that were recently posted on our blog.
Twitter is the FASTEST growing social network in history. According to Mashable – The Social Media Guide (@Mashable), Twitter has grown a staggering 1382% in the past year. In January 2009 alone, Twitter grew 50% in ONE month. Wow. This is a POWERFUL social media platform for those who understand how to harness its power.
Some people have the perception that Twitter is for people tweeting about what they ate for breakfast….this is NOT what Twitter is all about. You can connect with people in your local community or all around the globe who are experts in fields that you may be interested in learning about. People like Robert Kiyosaki (@TheRealKiyosaki), Donald Trump (@DonaldJTrump), Senator John McCain (@SenJohnMacain) Oprah (@Oprah), Larry King (@kingsthings) and more…all tweet regularly. Its truly a wealth of knowledge.
If you’ve never checked out Twitter….check it out. Maybe you will even decide to jump in, give it a try and start Tweeting – its a lot of fun and very educational!
