Don’t read OIG feed
if you feel like this.

Many VA medical centers, programs, and staff, also have Twitter accounts.  If your blood pressure is under control, I recommend perusing VA Office of the Inspector General Twitter feed: https://twitter.com/VetAffairsOIG

A few non-VA sites: https://twitter.com/cdchep;

https://twitter.com/HepatitisCTrust;

Intrigued? Read Twitter’s blog: https://blog.twitter.com/

The company will be going public soon so it will become an even bigger social media player.  Do you tweet?
