With so many social media platforms to choose from, it can be hard to keep up with all the conversations! While LinkedIn, Facebook and Instagram have their place, it seems (in our opinion anyway) that Twitter is the ‘go to’ destination for connecting and finding Digital Health news, events, ideas and leaders.
Whether you’re new to Twitter, or just want to make sure that you’re ‘in the know’, we have compiled a list of some of the most active and followed leaders sharing insights to transform health and wellness. Each account listed below is that of an individual (i.e. not a corporation or brand) and it certainly is not a complete account of everyone posting great information on Twitter! It is entirely subjective, and we really tried to keep it short so the list wouldn’t be overwhelming. If you would like to see an objective assessment of the top accounts to follow, please see the report issued by Onalytica (we came in at #19 out of the top 100!).
We will review this list periodically, so if you think we’ve missed one (and we’ve missed loads just to get this list started!), please send us a DM (that’s twitter-speak for ‘Direct Message’) on our handle @dhealthtoday. Happy Tweeting!
