When To Not Post Pictures Of Yourself Drinking

"A friend recently brought to my attention a disturbing question from a psychiatrist working with a transplant team: Should she be checking the sobriety claims of liver transplant candidates by looking on their Twitter and other social media sites? That question merits discussion because it’s clear both doctors and patients are entering a new world of uncertain medical privacy due to Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and other outlets."
Regardless of your concerns about medical privacy in an age of social media, I think we can all agree that if you are trying to get into a liver transplant program it is probably a bad idea to litter your Twitter feed with photos of yourself getting plastered. I mean, that is at least one of the bad ideas in this scenario.
