Do you like to cook?

by Leigh Ann Otte, managing editor

It’s time for our monthly Twitter roundup. This time, we have a ton of tweeters and bloggers to highlight. If you’re not on Twitter but like reading health blogs, just skip to the second section.

But before I get to that: a quick plug for our free preview issue since the offer ends Sunday. My Family Doctor is a unique, fun-to-read, trustworthy, magazine written by health-care providers for the general public. We feature the latest information on how to prevent and treat disease, tell you which alternative remedies really work, and tackle widespread myths and rumors.

Now, on to the Twitter fun.

Twitter bird

by Leigh Ann Otte, managing editor

Oh sure, CNN, Ashton Kutcher, Oprah and the like may have jumped on the bandwagon in the past few months, but we at My Family Doctor have been tweeting for more than a year.  Mm-hm.  Ahead of the curve, we are.

OK, I’ll stop.

If you’re new to Twitter or just want to discover more health tweeters, here are a few follow suggestions.  I’ll be doing this regularly for the Follow Friday festivities (the tradition of recommending good tweeters weekly).

Twitter logoby Leigh Ann Hubbard, Managing Editor

Do you tweet?

There’s this cool thing. All the kids are doing it. It’s called Twitter. At first glance, it seems to be about the most inane thing you could possibly do with your time. You log on; a box asks, “What are you doing?” and you get 140 characters to answer. Yep. That’s it.

But, after reading about it seemingly everywhere (like here, here and here), I finally dove in a little over a month ago. I’m officially addicted. And guess what … there are lots of doctors who tweet. What’s more, Dr. Hubbard’s latest blog post can be attributed directly to this silly little site.
