“There’s something special about this”

Tony Breu is a Hospitalist and medical educator whom I have affectionately termed the Championship Belt Holder for creating threads of information on Twitter known as #MedThreads or #Tweetorials. These threads are brilliant, fun and are changing how we learn. Tony and I jump into the impact of these threads, tensions they’re generating, and what the future holds.

Tony just had an article published in the New England Journal of Medicine on this same subject, it can be found by clicking here
