  1. My take on the numbers: Twitter is by and large much easier to handle than online video. Videos take time to shoot, edit, upload, etc., and people won’t watch just anything. It’s not as simple as throwing up old TV commercials and expecting a response.

    Twitter takes minutes to set up, is easy to customize, is easy to update and the number of people using it is growing at an alarming rate. It’s a very simple way for a hospital to start injecting some personality into an institution and make themselves available to consumers in ways they haven’t been before.

  3. Greg,

    True, Just having an account doesn’t ensure success, but it is a big step for conservative organizations like hospitals. Tracking that step is a one of the goals for this site.
    I have no plans to extend the list beyond hospitals, but welcome others to build similar lists.

    Thank you,
