Is twitter a dumpster fire?

Ok. There are a ton of great articles on WHY scholars should join Twitter, but most don’t offer an in-depth HOW-to.

This leads to hesitation and timidness.

So, I present a thread “You’ve joined Twitter. Now what?” #AcademicTwitter #scicomm #SoMe
First, choose a handle you’ll be happy with 5 years from now. I’d regret creating @SarahNEU2013 now that I’ve long since graduated.

#academictwitter #scitwitter #medtwitter
Next, pick a good bio photo. A professional headshot you’ve used in other places (e.g., university directory) is smart.

Because Twitter has paused verification, I see consistent photos across multiple channels as an unofficial way to confirm you are who you say you are.

Today I gave divisional rounds @UofA_ID on the power of #SoMe and #IDTwitter for ID physicians and microbiologists.

I have gained loads in this space, and here I compile some of the takeaways 🥡 for those who remain unconvinced of the benefits of #MedTwitter

A thread 1/
Whether we like it or not, #SoMe has changed our world. It has changed the way leaders are chosen, the way we communicate & interact with one another, the empowerment & mobilization of societies, & giving us unprecedented access to people and spaces otherwise unimaginable. 2/
#SoMe has also changed the way academic physicians and scientists practice and how we conduct and communicate science. 3/

Citation counts come from OTHER RESEARCHERS. They are important, yes.

But, sharing #science on #SoMe=broad & instantaneous dissemination to those who focus their time AT THE BEDSIDE. Which may surprise some- but is MOST OF MEDICINE especially....#anesthesiology.(Thread) #AUA2019
A metric like the “Kardashian Index” *MAY* be relevant in genome biology where the proportion of basic/translational science is significantly higher and no immediate bedside application for a general practitioner is there. (and I’m making an assumption here) #medtwitter #aua2019
When your #research is relevant primarily to other #scientists who are also writing research papers then citation counts do more wholly reflect the paper’s impact. But in clinical research, it’s different. Bedside clinicians are looking to the literature for guidance & new ideas.

Themes from the opening and keynote speaker at @UBSSW Poverty is a Human Rights Issue: 4th Annual Symposium:
- Poverty is nuanced
- It is based on the history of the United States and US Social Policy
- Many “good” policies to integrate individuals have been create but..
#PHRI
Have been created so marginalized communities can be integrated because profits have been able to be made off of their exploitation (ie. Predatory Lending allows credit, for profit education allows debt and worthless degrees) #PHRI #MacroSW #Policy
- There are many two tiered systems (4% loan rates vs 11% loan rates).
- Military budget
- If we have Medicare for all, how do we ensure a second system for the wealthy doesn’t get created so we don’t wind up back where we started? #MacroSW #PHRI

India Digital News Report out from @risj_oxford. Shows English-speaking Indian internet users embrace mobile-first, platform-dominated media environment w/search+social+messaging apps key for how they access news. Main findings in thread, report here: reutersinstitute.politics.ox.ac.uk/our-research/i… 1/8
India is a mobile first market, with 68% of respondents identifying smartphone as their main device for news, 31% saying they ONLY use mobile devices for news, higher than other countries we've surveyed. 2/8
81% say that distributed discovery, especially search (32%) or social (24%) is their main way of accessing news online, again, higher than most other countries we've surveyed. Only 18% say going direct to news website or app is their main way of accessing online news. 3/8

Low vaccination rates are a #publichealth crisis, leading to outbreaks of deadly diseases like #measles. My new research in Vaccine/@ElsevierNews provides insight into the characteristics of people who post #antivax content on #Facebook: dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.vacc…
First, I want to credit my fantastic co-authors: @MTH_Pitt @emfelter @DrToddWo @ChadTRM @PittPubHealth. This research stemmed from thousands of #antivax comments on a video on the @kidspluspgh Facebook page: facebook.com/watch/?v=10159…
We used social network, quantitative, and qualitative analyses to examine 25% of people who left these comments. Our goal was to answer questions about who these people are, the information they post, and how they are connected.

#CAD puede presentarse en #T1D y #T2Diabetes. Debido a obesidad, han aumentado los casos en esta última, presentándose también como debút.

#T1D es resultado de destrucción autoinmune progresiva de células beta. Ocurre a una tasa de 6-8%/año en aquellos con Dx establecido.

Hi, all. I’m giving noon conference to the UIC residents on use of social media next week

Can we show them the power of #SoMe?

Any tips you recommend?

@SapnaKmd @namd4kids @hshermd @MAhealthforkids @DrCJohns @DrJaimeFriedman @greenhousemd @PergamIC @sbernsteinmd @EMeadeMD
Side note: there were literally dozens of people I wanted to tag. I used the very scientific method of hitting @ and just putting in names

I’d love for anyone to respond, but if you do, please don’t forget to remove tag for everyone else so I don’t bother all those fine people
Also, @DrJas_Saavedra - do you want this to be a how-to or a why-to talk?

Dear friends & colleagues- the support you have shown in a vulnerable moment has been overwhelming. I will try to highlight some of the advice and reflections I have received on #burnout that were helpful & thought provoking:
1) Celebrate your numerator. We focus to much on the denominator (those things not yet done), but the wins we have delivered get forgotten too quickly.
2) Life is a marathon run on an oval track. There are often things/issues that come around again. Don’t beat yourself up, you have not failed- this is life. Learn a bit more about yourself with each experience.

Twitter and other #SoMe are a fecund source of examples of scientific illiteracy.
There are a lot of people whose understanding of science entails two opponents slinging examples at each other. Examples of papers, websites, news articles that were cherry-picked to confirm a view
Antivax vs vax, climate change deniers vs agreers, etc.

They start with an opinion, then look for confirmatory evidence.
They think that this is how science is done, and that"looking for evidence" is the essence of science.

Mostly what it does is entrench false beliefs, bias
This is partly caused by straight forward ignorance of science and lack of training in research techniques, but also fed by the myth of the "lone genius"

In this view, a rugged individual is the only font of knowledge, and the epitome of science rigor is solitary research

when I turn the lantern almost all the way off, it emits a blue-red glow from the mantles barely being warmed by the short blue flames inside. when the wind gusts, it flickers to yellow life briefly.

2/n recently, while welcoming newbies (esp students) and “onboarding” them to #medtwitter & #hcsm, I was asked to put together advice for IM applicants on how to best use social media during application/interview season. I think this advice is applicable beyond IM, too.

Q2. Content is key in #SoMe! Where do you find it? How do you keep up a daily content feed? #behavioralmedchat
A2. I post what I read. I don’t go out looking just for something to post. I also don’t post everything I read---I will post it if it seems like others could be interested or if I want to save it for later or both! #behavioralmedchat
A2. I try to keep the emotional valence of my content balanced, so if I’ve been hammering away at an issue that is a problem, I try to be mindful of that and be sure to also shine a light on things that are super cool and exciting. #behavioralmedchat

Tired of fighting the #antivaxxers on Twitter? Need some help in responding to their unsubstantiated claims and nonsense? Feel free to use this thread, or add your own comments. Be warned: it contains some crazy shit. And cursing. #wildride #VaccinesWork
I’ve asked several #antivaxxers for 1 peer-reviewed research study that supports their claim that vaccines cause autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Most never respond but some @ me a list of "studies" they claim make this link. For fun I started to read…

This is my commentary on #twitter #movements. Before I go I want to preface this with a statement: I love humans. We're amazing creative & powerful beings. I'm fascinated by human behaviour and the hidden motivations underlying our basic need to belong. 1/
I've observed some movements taking off on Twitter. Some for #MedEd, raising awareness, knowledge sharing, inspiration and sharing failings, wounds & triumphs. Generally they support creative expression in 280 characters. Awesome! 2/
As these movements gain momentum, more people want to join in b/c #belonging. I'm seeing a disturbing trend of sharing experiences of patients/clients to promote how deep & human they are. Some are purely intended, some not. 3/
