This is a brief, 30 minute guide to the use of Twitter in the NHS. The session will show you everything you need to get started, plus answer questions such as what's good about Twitter; what makes a great tweet; what's a hashtag and when should you use one and how do you connect with like-minded people.  We'll also answer any questions you might have.

The webinar is aimed at anyone who's looking to get started on Twitter be it for professional or personal use.
