I find Twitter an endless source of inspiration. Having access to real time thoughts, knowledge and ideas shared across the world is very powerful social learning. Through Twitter I am able to join in the debates at local, national and international conferences which are exploring broader definitions of social care which encompasses all of the services which contribute to an individual feeling safe, secure and supported in their local community.
