New Handle for National Library of Medicine Twitter Feed
Effective Monday, December 3, 2012, NLM’s general Twitter feed will be changed from @nlm_newsroom to @nlm_news. The new name will give us a few extra characters for our tweets and also captures more accurately this feed which, although created to serve the needs of the media, has evolved to serve a wider audience, including librarians, historians, patient advocates, health organizations and the public at large.
There should be no perceptible changes in the operation and content of the new feed. The “nlm_newsroom” handle will continue operating in parallel to the new “nlm_news”, so current followers will not need to resubscribe, however web pages listing @nlm_newsroom should be updated to @nlm_news.
