OT Twitter Accounts You Need to Follow!

Written by Grant Mitchell MOT, OTR/L, Published on April 26, 2017

Staying connected to prominent occupational therapists and organizations is easy using social media and OT Twitter accounts.

Twitter provides a simple and efficient platform for OTs and therapy organizations to provide concise, informative, and thought-provoking therapy information. For those of you who, like myself, have been living under a rock for the last few years, Twitter has gained traction as a primary avenue to disseminate information.

Grant Mitchel MOTR/L is devoted to improving occupational therapists' access to the newest research and developments in the field. Grant has teamed up with NGOT to provide this comprehensive list of OT Twitter accounts (the movers and shakers in the OT world)! We would also like to thank Dominic Lloyd-Randolfi, OT/s for his contributions to this list, and for all his hard work and efforts.

If you're interested in any of the topics listed, simply expand the toggle box to see a list of OT Twitter accounts you can follow to ensure that you're informed!
