20 emergency physicians with most followers on Twitter

I have been systematically following emergency physicians on Twitter for more than 3 years now thru my TwittER project. It all started in 2012 when I analysed around 600 Twitter account by emergency physicians. This report has been published in EMJ – Analysis of emergency physicians’ Twitter accounts.

Since 2012 I have added many more emergency physicians to the list, and I am currently following almost 1500. I believe this to be the biggest curated list of emergency physicians on Planet Earth.

Here are the top 20 emergency physicians with most followers on Twitter and some stats about their accounts. Tables and graphs are interactive. For example your can sort data in tables by clicking on header descriptions.


Stop smoking with qwitter

Are you struggling to stop smoking? You tried all sorts of approaches, but none of them worked. Maybe you can try qwitter, it’s not like you have something to lose (except your nasty habit).

Qwitter is a social tool powered by twitter and created, you guest it, to help you stop smoking. It does that by allowing you to:

  • easily keep track of how many cigarettes you smoke each day
  • keep a journal of your thoughts & feelings as you strive to smoke less
  • view your progress over time
  • share this information with others who can support you (or insult you)

qwitterI like certain things about it, mostly originating from twitter working in the background. It is very easy and simple to use, it allows your friends/family/shrink to subscribe to your grumbling and it produces some nice looking stats, representing number of cigarettes you smoked each day. This way you can expose your personal failures on the Internet for everyone to see, and if this doesn’t get you to stop smoking nothing will. 

I don’t know if qwitter actually helped anyone, but I saw today that there were 474 people using it, so if you want to stop or start smoking (wouldn’t that be original) why not become the registered user number 475. I just hope you don’t get addicted to qwitter/twitter.
