How would you tackle this heavily calcified LAD with calcified #nodule that was appropriately identified by intravascular imaging? #OCT…

In this #EHJCaseReports #tweetorial we take a deep dive into the Rx of #calcified coronary lesions.
Calcified lesions are top of the totem pole of complex PCI
Main armamentaria are balloon-based #IVL & ablation-based (rotational/orbital) techniques, while ancillary tools eg guide extension catheters are useful too.…

🚨Our new review paper 🚨 (with @roozenbot & @Sander_vdLinden) of #inoculationtheory applied to tackling #misinformation is out in the special issue “Threats to #Science” in the ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science!

🧵See 7 major points + link below:
🧵No, #fact-checking or #debunking is NOT enough to combat online misinformation - #fakenews can continue to influence reasoning and beliefs, even after it has been retracted/corrected. (1/7)
🧵Originating in the 60’s as a “vaccine for brainwash”, inoculation theory offers a logical basis for developing a psychological “#vaccine” against misinformation. (2/7)

#antivaxx efforts now even use #deepfake

to target #refugee, Black, religious minority communities

like measles outbreak in Minnesota in 2019: Wakefield was flown in TO spread #misinformation & #disinformation

Now: online fake accounts/fake identities vs #VaccinesWork
What has #healthcare been doing meanwhile?

#Medbikini: Teach (male Asian) med students to make fake accounts to cyberstalk trainees’ personal Facebook for: bikini
or “being political” or “religious” (#BLM)

➡️“model minority” pipeline for “shadow faculty” vs Blck @ayshakhoury
#Medbikini #research got flak for men vs women

BUT was ALSO fake acct #surveillance vs #BLM like drove out @ayshakhoury @uche_blackstock @nhannahjones

While academia has ignored #vaccineequity
➡️ongoing #pandemic & deaths in marginalized targeted by #antivaxx

This 👇🏽👇🏿👇🏻 This is why #BLM exists & why “implicit bias” is not only real but it kills

Why, when you see it, say something, do something
The system changes not by sharing tweets & hashtags but actions & consequences & removal of toxicity from the system

Take #sharethemic initiative. It allowed #Blackexcellence to speak thru #influencer accounts to large followings for a day. I looked at before/after numbers, it did NOT drive any additional traffic to the actual accounts of those voices. Resurfacing this:

Proceedings to buy JJ's residence quashed by MHC: "Today's India is not a land of pharaohs or emperors to immortalise the dead.
Justice N.Seshasayee said the need for the memorial could not be dictated by professional achievements, political populism, an image carefully groomed by cultivated charisma and electoral victories.
Referring to the State having relied on a 1969 SC Judgement related to a memorial for Mahatma Gandhi in Ahmedabad, the Judge asked, "By relying upon this verdict, has not the Govt. acknowledged that the benchmark for establishing a memorial with public money can be justified.....

/the information dilemma_

A 17-tweet summary of my academic contribution to the #KidneyWk 2021 meeting.
@ASNKidney: Thanks for selecting my work for presentation...I appreciate it.
My disclosures
I am a physician-programmer. I analyze #SoMe data, with a keen focus on Twitter. I primarily analyze tweets in #NephTwitter and #CardioTwitter, and I have analyzed tweets for Oncology and Endocrinology organizations as well.
We face an information dilemma we face in medical communities. The dilemma originates from customized search results. How can anything customized *to/for you* be a negative?
It's negative when ≥2 people are searching for the same thing (the truth) & getting different results.

‘…ask yourself if the authors are truly trying to inform their readers or if they are instead trying to advance a narrative that would be undermined if they fully enumerated how COVID-19 has harmed children.’
Is UK Paediatrics #SoMe governance dead? When will its leaders act against medics pushing misinformation narratives?

‘Doctors writing about COVID-19 and children have an obligation to inform their readers of essential facts.’ @jeremyphoward 👏👏

👉 Lessons I learned on & about #MedTwitter

A 🧵 about my journey exploring what’s beyond being #professional as a 🩺 #SoMe user

#TLDR: Aim for fulfilled & happy & kind ➕ a healthier 🪢 with technology 📱💻
🤔 why I made this 🧵?

I was asked to give a talk: 'How to be professional on social media' at #ESPNIC2021 for #YoungESPNIC and other participants of the congress

❗️But I felt we could be aiming for so much more than #Professional

So here we are👇
Experts talk about #SoMe as a non-binary thing: it isn’t like you use it or not, because it’s already everywhere. Others say it is actually harder to ignore it.

👥 If you come aboard, do it mindfully
⛔️ Staying out intentionally is an option
⚠️ Avoid the half-in/half-out state

2. It’s cardiac amyloidosis! Here is a great resource from @escardio WG on Myocardial and Pericardial Diseases to start with…
3. First, what is amyloidosis?

Amyloidosis occurs when abnormal proteins misfold and deposit in tissues as beta-pleated sheets. These disrupt tissue structure and can cause damage to many different organs.

Hi #MedTwitter!!! I was excited to be involved w/ the #SHEASpring2021 pre-conference workshop that included an eval of the professional use of #twitter. Here are my notes from the session, sharing in case useful; my focus is on providing helpful tips to new(er) users (🧵):
✅ Always be mindful of your reason for using #twitter; keep use +, professional, consider focusing on only a few topical areas important to you. Consider limiting use to only a few times/day and limit total time spent in app (can go down a 🐇 hole)
At conferences (like #SHEASpring2021):

✅ Connecting w/ others during conferences HUGELY valuable & a good way to grow your network
✅ Engage w/ others; don’t just put out content, respond to others’ posts (great way to build network). Don’t forget to use the conference #!

1/16 There were SO many great questions in the pre-workshop on #SoMe & #VisualAbstract use today for #SHEASpring2021
One ❓was what is how to 'thread'?
So, let's chat!
Know the differences in #SoMe platforms, what kind of content they use, and think about where you intended audience is most likely found!
Consider what you like to do - write, photo, image, listen.
✅ Create intentional content

➡️Native kidney biopsy plays a crucial role in the diagnosis of many conditions and, while generally safe, can be associated with bleeding complications.

Would you biopsy a patient with aspirin exposure?🤔
Bleeding complication rates are low, with less than 2% of patients requiring transfusion and less than 0.5% requiring an intervention to control the bleeding.

⚠️These complication rates are higher in hospitalized patients and those with AKI.…
But not every patient has the same risk of bleeding 🩸

Risk factors include anemia, thrombocytopenia, frailty index, obesity, comorbidities, and kidney function.…

We live in an attention #economy & what #Tweetiatricians have known for decades (#Twitter started in 2006): importance of drawing attention to factual science-based information as compared to #misinformation & #disinformation, especially on #vaccines…
You have to be fast & prolific to play catch up to this. I have 77K tweets, a moderate sized band of 6K followers interested enough to tolerate my volume but use of hashtags allows reach across Twittersphere. Trending hashtags = better for riding a way for that attention economy
If is unclear if we are now so siloed that tweets are ineffective with anti-vaxx. But not all anti-vaxx are QAnon

“QAnon is ...a self-sustaining environment of #disinformation & #misinformation...

.. QAnon hijacks the architecture of social media..

..By controlling acceptable forms of information, QAnon traps its members in a downward spiral of radicalization.”…
“As P.W. Singer and Emerson Brooking describe in.. book Likewar: The Weaponization of #SocialMedia, this phenomenon of “junk” or “fake news” is not new. In 2016, a similar, but related, conspiracy known as “Pizzagate” resulted in a shooting at a DC area pizza parlor.” #SoMe
Above is not limited to academic articles

There has been an increase in #antiAsianhate crimes
targeting of #GOTV by minorities
including this attempt to intimidate me for my GOTV, by armed right wing

There was the #Nashvillebombing (with QAnon beliefs)

Many specialties are gravitating to Twitter for education & learning.
Some are more advanced than others; it is very evident that #NephTwitter is far more advanced than other specialties: longer experience w/#SoMe education & more offerings. Image
