On Twitter, 10,000 people are listening to Jen Gunter. Sexual health, shoes and “The Hunger Games” are the subjects of just a few of the 36,500 tweets crafted by the obstetrician-gynecologist at Kaiser Permanente in San Francisco. Gunter’s social-media presence also includes a blog, which she uses to write about birth control and weight loss; a professional Facebook page; another Facebook account for friends; Instagram; and Tumblr.
