Twitter is a strange a service, because if you don't follow anyone it is about as useful as the first telephone. Value only emerges as your follow list evolves. One of the missions of NephJC is to bring nephrologists together for twitter events so people can find other interesting people develop there own network. If you don't pick up 1 or 2 new people to follow at every #NephJC discussion either we are doing a bad job or you're doing it wrong.
The value of Twitter is related directly to the quality of the people you follow. In the spirit of helping people get started on Twitter we are going to recommend accounts to follow on Twitter. This first edition is about official accounts.
