Best Tweets For Trauma Survivors is another new regular feature (in addition to Favorite Tweetstuff, posted yesterday). I am setting up the mechanism by which I can more efficiently collect tweets for inclusion, and will source from a wider sampling than I present here in my first Best Tweets post.
My selections are entirely subjective, and I know it will never be possible to include every great resource tweeted. But I can try! I’ve personally read all tweeted links, and believe them to be of great value.
I only just joined Twitter in September, so these truly are end of year resources. I’m sure I’ve missed some terrific tweets, so please add your candidates for Best Tweets For Trauma Survivors in the comments.
EDIT TO ADD: All links are now clickable.
