While I had been using Twitter socially since 2006, it hadn’t occurred to me to create a professional Twitter presence until just this year. In just a few months, I have been able to connect and engage with so many people around the psychology issues I’m most passionate about. It’s been an incredible resource for me and has allowed me to have so many interesting conversations and collaborations with people. In fact, I get so much out of it myself, that it’s very easy to forget that others find value in what I post.
If you’re a mental health professional who is interested in using Twitter, you may want to read my post Managing Twitter as a Mental Health Professional. Plenty of us are already there having conversations about mental health issues and we would love to connect with you.
Speaking of the others who are already connected on Twitter, I am especially delighted to be in such great company with the other top ten. If you’re interested in psychology tweets, you should definitely be following these folks too. Links to them are here and here.
