It seems for many doctors Twitter activity is an outpost connected to some other online place. Â 48% of physicians on Twitter link to their blog according to Katherine Chretienâ€™s recent study published in JAMA. Â Doctors apparently understand that different types of information flow better in different channels.
If you had asked me I would have estimated that this Twitter-blog association was much lower.Â Of course I like to believe that I understand the social doctor better than I actually do.Â And this is why we need original research like Katherine Chretienâ€™s.
