Tweets from the OR

Yesterday's NY Times Tara Parker-Pope' blog post on tweets from the OR -- what a great way to use this new technology. During the operation on a 10-year-old Mongolian burn victim the Children's Mercy Hospital's public information officer tweeted the progress of the surgery to both, the boy's family in the waiting room and in Mongolia (with family's permission the tweets were made public).

What an exciting and useful potential application for Twitter!

  1. Your blog should have a "like" button like facebook. The tweet read was interesting.
