Twitter builds relationships with new patients and deepens relationships with on-going patients.  Twitter’s 140 character limit to each tweet means that people do not feel imposed upon when they follow your practice.  Of course, they might never see your tweets if they have an active Twitter feed.

The danger is that your followers may never see the good content that you are sharing.  They can end up forgetting about you as a result.  Another mistake that Tweeple (Twitter people) make is that they can flood their followers with a string of tweets.  Too much of a good thing can turn off even the most ardent follower.

Consistency is one of the anchors of truly great social media.

Buffer (www.Buffer.com) is an app (application) which helps you to reach out to your followers when they are likely to be checking their Twitter stream.   Buffer puts you back in control of your time rather than the other way around.  Buffer allows you to use the power of social media efficiently.

Buffer chooses the best time of day when your followers are likely to read their Twitter feed.  You use schedule your tweets through Buffer.  These tweets are then released at these pre-arranged times during the day.  Your tweets become more accessible by being there when your readers are.

I use Buffer for Twitter.  The ability to “set and forget” my tweets enables me to focus on the content that I am sharing rather than the process of sharing the content.  I read what I may be sharing once a day, select the final cut and click the Buffer button built into my browser that was installed using the Buffer app.  That’s it!

Later in the day I can go directly on Twitter and answer comments, questions and show appreciations to people that have retweeted my content.   My tweeting has been relatively effortless since I started using Buffer.
