Twitter is a great place to be as a healthcare professional, you get to meet with all sorts of people, share ideas, experiences, thoughts, evidence, research and participate in really interesting discussions …. However life would be very dull indeed if along the way we could laugh a little. Social media is social after all !! I think we need the social side of Social Media, we need to laugh and have light hearted discussion too. Often I think that Twitter for HCPs is a bit like the virtual staff room – yes we exchange knowledge, debrief, talk shop and support one another … but also we laugh and joke and .. well be human!
So having said all of that, I do love it when I see a tweet that actually makes me laugh out loud as this one from @MarkAxcellNHS did:
Yes its goofy and yes it can be pretty much classified as a “dad” joke … but it made me laugh! It’s great to Tweet but we should also never forget to laugh! Thanks Mark for a great Tweet 😀
