Public Health Pros Use Twitter for Patient Education Messages

Public Health Pros Use Twitter for Patient Education Messages | eLearning through Social Media | Scoop.it

Public health professionals are using Twitter to spread patient education and informative messages, leveraging the platform to communicate with an otherwise hard-to-reach audience, according to data published in the Journal of Medical Internet Research.

Twitter has emerged as a popular tool for public health professionals because it helps drum up energy around a certain health issue, the research team from the University of Florida wrote.

“Through microblogging, individuals not only share personal mementos, opinions, political information, and news but also promote products and information, thereby raising awareness for causes or charities,” the research team said.

“Research shows that microblogging is powerful in convincing/rallying other individuals because of immediacy, its far reach to individuals around the world, and is seen as credible because it appears in a print format,” researchers continued.

The average Twitter user is fairly young, between ages 18 and 29, the researchers reported. Racial demographics skew slightly toward the majority being African American or Hispanic. Most users also live in urban areas.
