This opinion piece introduces, defines and considers the application of Twitter within occupational therapy research and education. It defines the social networking tool and then examines its potential for use in occupational therapy education, by students and within research. The opinion piece raises critical issues that the profession must address in relation to the responsible use of Twitter but strongly advocates it as a form of social media that needs to be better understood and utilised by educators, researchers and practitioners within occupational therapy.
