Does Twitter make sense, long term, as a place to host these conversations? One of my senses mentioned Google+ as an alternative, prompting a snarky response on Twitter https://twitter.com/SoMeSucks/...

There are also specialized online communities for doctors, but Dr. Cadogan points out they have limited reach (often country specific because they validate medical credentials on a national level), whereas FOAM is a global conversation.
