with Nurse K
What's your best tweet?
Overheard: "I wish we had more cases like that guy who poured concrete into his ass to make a mold of his rectum."
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Twitter has apps too?
Twitter or Facebook?
I use Twitter to talk to medical professionals and Facebook to stalk them...and to ensure that my mom is behaving. Or something.
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
Almost everything. I'm about as Type A as it comes for grammar, spelling, and punctuation.
Why should we vote for you?
I think I'm a good representation of a "real" ER nurse in the raw. If you want to know what an ER nurse thinks, follow me!
How do you make your tweets unique?
Heck, the stuff writes itself. I just have to choose what to pick out, so I'm not always writing about the same type of thing.
Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?
In the world of nursing, I always giggle at @conniern1. In general, who doesn't love @shitmydadsays?
How do you decide what to tweet?
Things that happen to me (usually at work) that are intrinsically interesting or funny without much elaboration.
Why'd you start tweeting?
I started because I wanted an outlet for all the little one-liners and goofy tidbits that didn't need a whole blog post of explanation.
How will the world change in the next year?
If I had my way, there will be a great improvement in having IV trays stocked with tourniquets and tegaderms at all times without fail.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
It's really annoying if *all* you do is tweet a link to your own blog posts. Yawn.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
The tegaderms and tourniquets will stock themselves!
