It's back! The new and improved Top 10 list of UHN scientists on Twitter is here with a revised metric and a bonus list – the Top 5 UHN and Foundations leadership on Twitter.
The Top 10 list was
first launched one year ago to examine why our scientists have embraced Twitter, the online social networking service.
The clear message was that Twitter is another useful news and information tool to help spread word of UHN's groundbreaking innovations and expertise. It allows worldwide dissemination of our work and promotes discourse with colleagues and the general public, all in an effort to advance the field of healthcare and improve patient care.
Above all – everyone agreed – it takes time and energy to be successful on Twitter.
The 2015 ranking is based on each scientist's Followers as of October 15, 2015. UHN Executive Vice-President of Education Dr. Brian Hodges came first with more than 1,800 Followers. UHN President and CEO Dr. Peter Pisters had the greatest year-over-year growth with an increase of 622 Followers since last October.
The busiest tweeter was Princess Margaret Cancer Centre`s Dr. Mary Gospodarowicz, who churned out nearly 800 tweets in the past year.
Two newcomers cracked this year's Top 10 - Dr. Joseph Cafazzo of the Centre for eHealth Innovation and Dr. Michael Baker, the Rose Family Chair in Medicine.
Dr. Gospodarowicz`s colleagues at the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation lead the way with three of the new Top 5 list of UHN and Foundation leadership. PMCF CEO Paul Alofs is a prodigious communicator – so far generating over 6,000 tweets since signing on to Twitter in 2009, a pace of about 1,000 tweets per year.
