Twittering your surgery

Hypothetically speaking, I guess I would prefer my surgeon to pay more attention to me and my surgery then to Twitter. Call me old fashion. Money quote:
"Doing this removes a real communication barrier. It helps make something scary much more comprehendable," said Christopher Parks, co-founder of the Web site changehealthcare.com. "It brings us closer together and makes us more engaged."
Now I'm down with bringing people together, but I just wouldn't want my hypothetical surgery to be a vehicle for social engagement.

And, what is it with Twitter and people these days?
