NIAMS has launched NIH_NIAMS on Twitter, the popular microblogging site, as a companion to the Institute's Web site. NIAMS will use its presence on Twitter to announce new publications, stories, resources, and research advances.
Each week, NIAMS will post "tweets," short messages that will be sent to those who follow the NIH_NIAMS Twitter account. These tweets will link to new stories, publications, and other content posted on the NIAMS Web site. Followers can receive tweets through Web browsers on computers and on mobile devices, such as smartphones.
To follow NIH_NIAMS on Twitter, click on the "Find People" link on your Twitter home page. Enter "NIAMS" in the search field and then click on the "follow" icon for NIH_NIAMS. You can also visit http://twitter.com/NIH_NIAMS to read the Institute's tweets or follow NIH_NIAMS. If you do not have a Twitter account, you can sign up for one at www.twitter.com/signup.
