Tweeting the meeting: an in-depth analysis of Twitter activity at #KidneyWk11

Tweeting the meeting: an in-depth analysis of Twitter activity at #KidneyWk11 | Social Ortho | Scoop.it

From the conclusion of the discussion:

 

There are an additional 6 notable points of this investigation.

 

First, tweets that were not deposited in the #kidneywk11 timeline were not analyzed in this investigation. However, this deficiency is unlikely to significantly alter our results because #kidneywk11 was the official Twitter timeline for Kidney Week 2011.

 

Second, we calculated sentiment scores through a lexicon-based linguistic analysis of each tweet. While this method is well accepted and validated, it may not encompass the full range of emotions that a “bag of words” model could capture [18]–[21]. Moreover, the lexicon used was comprised of English words only, and thus non-English tweets (76 out of 993) were excluded from the analyses. We did not translate the non-English tweets; doing so could have resulted in an unintended change of tone and thereby skew the results.

 

Third, we correlated the number of sessions and posters with the number of informative tweets. A more meaningful correlation might be the time exposed to each learning pathway with the number of informative tweets, but the former could not be accurately measured or calculated.

 

Fourth, we did not compare tweets from similarly sized nephrology or other medical conferences. Our comparison was limited between tweets from Kidney Week 2011 and the 2011 ADA meetings because conference officials for both had documented an interest in using Twitter to increase public awareness [1], [6]. A comparison with other nephrology or medical conferences would have been more meaningful had those respective conference officials/organizers documented a similar intention.

 

Fifth, we analyzed 917 tweets from 172 unique tweeters. While these numbers might be considered small, they represent the entire population of 1) English-worded tweets and 2) tweeters from the meeting. In addition, this study had an 80% power to detect statistically significant differences.

 

Finally, a large percentage of tweets were advertisements. This finding makes the use of Twitter as a communication tool challenging as advertisers can misuse it under the disguise of education.

The tweets analyzed are part of the public domain. Neither the ASN, Twitter, nor the individual tweeter own any or all tweets deposited in #kidneywk11 [23]–[24]. Tweets, by definition, are short expressions and are not protected under Section 102 of the US Copyright Act [25]. To the best of our knowledge, this report conforms to the Strengthening the Reporting of Observational Studies in Epidemiology (STROBE) guidelines [26].

 

Our investigation highlights significant areas of promise when using Twitter to share kidney-specific educational information with the public. In fact, our analyses are pertinent to any medical conference in which the organizers or healthcare providers wish to disseminate information to the general public. Dissemination of information is needed in order for the nephrology community to increase public awareness of kidney disease. This investigation focuses on how well Twitter was used to disseminate educational information from a scientific conference. In the future, investigations are needed to determine if greater dissemination of educational information will lead to greater public awareness.
