What Not To Do

Don't tweet about patients. Seriously don't, not even if your tweets are protected. Remember, nothing on social media is ever truly private.

Don't create accounts for your departments or programs. Just be yourself. If you think your department or program should have a Twitter account, please complete the Social Media Request Form.

Don't send complaints by tweeting to @UWHealth. Suggestions and questions are welcome, but complaints are often too complicated to deal with in 140 characters. If you have specific concerns you should direct them to your manager or the correct department. If you don't know where to go, we can help figure out who that would be.

Don't violate the Social Media policy when engaging in social media, including the following points:
