The world’s most influential doctors according to Twitter

I got the honour to be included in the list of the top 5 doctors in medicine published by The Independent. The list was based on Twitterdoctors.net which uses the Klout algorithm for determining the influence of tweeting doctors.

TwitterDoctors.net updates hourly the influence of doctors tweeting based on their activity, RTs (retweets) and followers. The site began its list at the end of July and boasts “1287 doctors with more joining every day” from around the globe including Australia, Belgium, India, UK, Jamaica, Japan, Colombia and the USA.

On September 7, the top five most influential doctors are:

1. @DRoftheVaJayJay

2. @drdrew

3. @brontyman

4. @Berci

5. @hrana

It doesn’t mean that much, but it’s good to know people like the content I share day by day.

  3. I agree with the previous poster. It would be nice for doctors to share their knowledge. There are millions of people without health insurance and have to turn to the internet and home remedies.

  4. As a doctor involved in dissemination of information, the difficulty is in raising the awareness thereof.

    Berci has been helpful in promoting one of our initiatives.

    But the challeneges in raising awareness are considerable.
