I did a TON of things in 2020, but one thing I didn't manage to keep up with is writing #tweetorials for all of the academic papers I published.

So here's a thread of very short summaries of the papers I've been a part of. Let me know which ones you want to hear more about!
My first paper of 2020 was the final paper from my dissertation. I really love this paper because it packs so many ideas into such a short amount of text, but one thing I regret is not giving it a more general title.…
Despite the title's focus on individual-level simulation models, the paper has important implications for all mediation analyses and for defining causal questions for non-manipulable exposures.…

I'm doing a "virtual" visiting scholar stint w/ @ubcMedCHES this week. Today was a day full of exciting new connections & great discussions.

Ended my day with a talk: "Digitizing Health Professions Education via #SoMe

I am now going to TWEET my lecture as a #tweetorial. Image
I began by situation myself as the current Assistant Dean of #FacDev within the @MacHealthSci Faculty. Much of my content would eventually revolve around what I've learned from #FOAMed and how it's translated to our recent digital transformation of @MacPFD. ImageImage
Shout out to @sherbino who opened my eyes to @Twitter as a community of practice for myself as a clinician AND an educator. The #FOAMed, #MedTwitter, and #MedEd tweeps have been instrumental in helping me develop as a practitioner, scholar, and now faculty developer. ImageImageImageImage

Time for another #morphology #Derm101 series #tweetorial on the skin exam. Today, we'll cover:


How the location a rash occupies on the body might help us with the differential diagnosis!

#FOAMEd #MedEd #medtwitter #dermtwitter #medstudenttwitter #dermatology
An important point to start:
Distribution is LEAST important in the skin exam. Primary & secondary lesions, configuration & scale are all better in informing our DDx.

I tell my learners that if confused about a rash, pretend it's elsewhere on the body & see if that helps.
Also - throughout this #tweetorial, I will try to display skin disease in lighter & darker skinned patients side by side. Remember in darker skin, erythema is harder to see, so I hope this highlights the point!

A question: In tweet 1, what distribution is shown in the photo:

Meniscus injury: a complete review.

@MedTweetorials @RosenelliEM
#MedEd #OrthoTwitter #Tweetorials
The meniscus function is two-fold. It increases stability by deepening the tibial surface and it aids in force transmission by increasing the contact area to spread force over a larger surface area. The meniscus is responsible for 50% of load transmission across the knee. (1)

The lateral meniscus has a more circular shape than the C-shaped medial meniscus. The lateral meniscus covers a larger portion of the articular surface and is also more mobile than the medial meniscus. The medial meniscus is relatively immobile and is attached to the MCL.

OK team, #tweetorial #3 in our #Derm101 series on the #dermatology exam. Today, let's discuss:


How primary lesions are grouped or shaped. Read on to learn more!

#dermtwitter #medtwitter #medstudentwitter #meded #FOAMEd pc:@dermnetnz @BrwnSkinMatters
Since this is the 3rd installment in the #Derm101 series, remember that if you haven't already, you might want to check out the first two #tweetorials on skin morphology.

Primary Lesion:

Secondary Lesion:
I think of configuration as how the primary lesion might be shaped or grouped. So this would include rashes that are:

Target/Targetoid (kind of)

What configuration was the rash in tweet #1?

Seminars in Nephrology has an entire issue devoted to social media in the discipline of nephrology.

The mastermind @kidney_boy highlights the contents here:…
First up is @aoglasser @RJmdphilly @michellebr00ks (all #WomenInMedicine) who highlight opportunities for community, advocacy, and connection.

They review the "anatomy" and "physiology" of tweets too. :D

Next up is @stones__ and @hswapnil who discuss Twitter journal clubs (#JClub). "Clubbing" on Twitter can certainly be a lot more exciting, and definitely an alternative until we can all stop #PhysicalDistancing…

The term “angina pectoris” comes from Greek “ankhonē” which means “strangling” & Latin “pectoris” meaning “chest”

The term has been used to describe a diagnosis rather than a symptomology.

Welcome to my tweetorial on a background to “angina pectoris”!
#tweetorials #meded 1/14
A history:

Descriptions date back as far as 400BC when Hippocrates observed that some people experienced chest pain precipitated by cold winds.

“Angina pectoris” was first coined by William Heberden in 1768 in his seminal paper “Some account of a Disorder of the Breast”

“Those who are afflicted with it, are seized while they are walking (more especially if it be uphill, and soon after eating) with a painful and most disagreeable sensation in the breast, which seems as if it would extinguish life if it were to increase or to continue"

Hard to think about #EndNeurophobia #neurology #tweetorials when I know we're all thinking/tweeting more about #EndRacism!

But #MedStudentTwitter asked and I will deliver....To f/u on CPSolvers recent case of ataxia

Here are the basics of CEREBELLUM and ATAXIA!
But first, a moment of silence for
and other lives lost to racism, structural violence, police brutality
I’m grateful for all the❤️#EndNeurophobia has received but hope you’ll check out the rest of my feed, which seeks to amplify voices I’m learning from in the path to being an antiracist ally. Want to learn more? Follow & learn:

My very first #ExerciseIsMedicine #Tweetorial is here: Breaking “it makes me feel good” into pieces🧠😀🏃‍♀️🏊‍♂️🚴#Thread ⬇️⬇️
#TwitterPoll at the END
1/ Are you exercising🏃‍♀️to boost your mental well-being during the pandemic🦠? People exercise because it makes them feel good🙃, but what exactly happens in our body? Keep reading to satisfy your curiosity & learn about the #mechanisms behind aerobic exercise & #mentalhealth
2/ Anxiety and depression are common mental health conditions. The prevalence in cardiac patients is ~20-30% & 2x higher in ♀️ vs ♂️. Social roles (e.g. caregiver role), cultural norms (e.g. societal sexism) and more pronounced hormonal shifts in ♀️ influence this sex-difference

I had no idea how popular #neuroanatomy #tweetorials would be! Thanks for the❤️!

Here's innervation of the leg/foot & approach to FOOT DROP

#MedEd #MedStudentTwitter
@CPSolvers @Tracey1milligan @MadSattinJ
@MedTweetorials @DxRxEdu @AANMember @StaceyLClardy @ContinuumAAN
Just like you can localize most peripheral upper extremity weakness by just knowing 5 nerves (see prior tweetorial), you can localize most peripheral lower extremity weakness by just knowing 5 nerves!

Just 5 nerves for each extremity- no neurophobia needed!

Which 5?


And the sciatic is really just the peroneal and tibial bound together!

And the leg/foot are much easier than the hand because the foot does much less intricate movements than the hand!

1/#MRPearls Hope you got your calipers ready today because we are going to briefly discuss prolonged QT intervals. @VCU_IMRes @AudreyBJernigan @chrisLyoungmd @ktwaybill @JCHillyard @CoryRTrankle @AjayPMD @jaideeppatelmd @VCUHealthHeart #tweetorials Image
2/#MRPearls The QT interval refers to the time duration between the onset of the QRS complex and the end of the T wave as it returns to the baseline. QT interval represents the time taken for ventricular depolarization and repolarization. @kalahasty @abouzaki_md Image
3/#MRPearls The proper way to measure the QT interval requires one to use the maximum slope intercept method to define the end of the T wave as pictured below. Also, the QT interval is inversely proportional to heart rate. @SamPowellMD @totocarbone @JeremyTurling Image

I’ve been working on my #medtwitter elevator pitch. Mostly because lately I seem to have lots of fleeting conversations about it.

And I know I’m not alone.

Here's what I find:

Some are sold but nervous.
Some are intrigued but don’t get it.

And a lot are precontemplative.
I think it’s because it can seem like all #medtwitter users look the same.

Them: “I would get on Twitter but I’m not a social media person.”
Me: “Twitter is different! Even if you don’t do social media!”
Them: 😐“Nah. Can’t see it.”


Them: ✌️🏾

Elevator ride over.
But I’ve been thinking about the many different #medtwitter identities there are. Most can find a fit nestled somewhere in 1 or a few of them.

What works for each person depends on a few things:

Who you are
What you hope to get from it
What’s going on in your life

@ebtapper @AtoosaRabiee @rrosenblattmd @ETSshow agree, would absolutely use in a talk if it contributed to your teaching goals
definitely "cite" the writer
one of the "perks" of using tweets in talks (ex. screengrabs) is that you can capture writer (profile) & date easily, but could also provide the hyperlink
@ebtapper @AtoosaRabiee @rrosenblattmd @ETSshow & you can cite tweets in publications, too
and just to get meta...@tony_breu himself has provided an answer to the "how"
(and the #tweetorial embedded was data from a survey he did about tweetorials)

@ebtapper @AtoosaRabiee @rrosenblattmd @ETSshow @tony_breu if you wanted to get really user friendly for folk not on twitter, you could provide linked to a @threadreaderapp unrolled thread (turns a thread into a single webpage)

1/23 This is part 2 of the “The Aorta is not just a pipe” #Tweetorial, focusing on abnormal aortic function and its consequences. Make sure to read part 1 before you read this one!
2/23 Let’s see what happens when the aorta is unhealthy. I am not even
talking about aortic aneurysms or dissections (that would be another Tweetorial). I am talking about impairment of the aorta’s pressure buffering function due to aortic stiffness.
3/23 Just like any other elastic material, the elastin fibers in the aortic wall fatigue as we age. Long story short, with aging, there is elastin fiber fatigue and increased proteolytic activity in the wall, with elastin breakdown and deposition of collagen.

1/19 Alright #CardioTwitter, here’s my first series of 2 #Tweetorials, and I’m going to call it: “The Aorta is Not Just a Pipe.” This is Tweetorial #1 focusing on normal aortic function. Tweetorial #2 will focus on abnormal aortic function.
2/19 The aorta is often viewed as a passive conduit of blood, when in fact, it has essential functions that aim to maximize cardiovascular efficiency and protect the end-organs. The conduit function is only 1 of the aorta’s functions.
3/19 All arteries pulsate, and for a particular function: which each beat, the heart generates a pulsatile energy – this energy is stored in the arterial wall during systole and released during diastole, allowing blood to keep moving forward throughout the cardiac cycle.

It's time for #TwitterReport! This time, we're making a #tweetorial on how to use tweetorials for case-based teaching.

Follow along to our Mid-Atlantic @SocietyGIM workshop in Ballroom B from 12:45-1:45 pm at the @PittTweet University Club on 11/15/19.

Let's get started!
@SocietyGIM @PittTweet 1/ What even is a #tweetorial?

A Tweetorial is a short thread of tweets which provides educator-driven content centered around a chosen topic.

Tweetorials leverage the multimedia capabilities of Twitter to dissect a topic using supporting articles, videos, diagrams, and polls.
