Each week we like to give back to our community by highlighting our top 5 Tweeple; the people whose tweets provide us with valuable industry insight, trending news and sometimes, just a smile.
This was a busy news week and these Top Tweeple helped us stay on top of it.
Our Top 5 are:
Andrew Spong is a social business developer, health communications consultant and an all-around interesting guy. His motto is "Changing the design and delivery of healthcare, one conversation at a time.” We consider ourselves lucky to be able to take part in some of these conversations with him on Twitter. We always appreciate his perspective on social media matters and look forward to his informative tweets.
Phil Baumann is a fantastic advocate for health care social media - as a registered nurse and a social business consultant. He's on the Board of Advisors for Mayo Clinic Center for Social Media and he's a great guy to pay attention if you want to keep up with what's new and trending in the health/pharma space.
Jamie Needel works for NM Incite, a company that works with large enterprises to develop and implelment successful social media strategies. Her tweets are authentic and always geared toward helping out a cause. A Penn State alumni, she's been actively supporting a grassroots group, of former Penn Staters (Proudtobeapennstater.com), outraged at school's recent scandal and determined to help prevent child abuse.
Deborah Kotz is a writer for the Boston Globe's health column, Daily Dose. We rely on her intrepid reporting and insight to keep us up-to-date with the industry’s latest research, regulations and rules. She's very engaged with her twitter community and is great at responding to her followers’ comments and questions.
Guy Kawasaki is a must-follow for nearly anyone. He's a content curation King and never fails to entertain and teach us something new with his tweets. While his practice of automated tweets and ghost tweeters who post on his behalf is controversial, we still look forward to seeing what he'll post next.
