To Tweet, or not to Tweet: or blog, or Facebook, or Instagram, etc.  Social media can be great; keep individually-identifiable information out of it (and remember, if someone knows enough data points - who the speaker is, where they work, dates or time frames - seemingly de-identified data is actually identifiable).  General information is OK, but specific patient communication can easily fall on the wrong side of the line.  Even emailing or texting patients is problematic, unless you're using some encrypted format, and even then you have the "authentication" issue of someone picking up someone else's phone.
