There are a number of resources available to rank Twitter users, or “tweeple”, including (alphabetically) Grader, Tweeple Twak, Twinfluence, TwitDir, Twitterholic and Twit Rank. However, the problem I find is that they are based primarily on quantitative data i.e. number of followers, number of following, updates etc. and nothing qualitative. Anybody can add hundreds of followers, but whose updates cut the mustard in terms of quality?

Being in the health care industry it is vitally important that you listen to the right people. Listening to the wrong person could have serious implications on your health or the health of others. To this end, I have compiled a list of the top 20 30 health tweeple I think you should follow based on the quality of their contributions and their overall influence in the field. Yes I will have missed people, and yes it will probably be biased, but at least it’s a start! So, the list:

  1. jenmccabegorman
  2. mindofandre
  3. carlosrizo
  4. pfanderson
  5. alensa
  6. bobcoffield
  7. tedeytan
  8. healthythinker
  9. ciscogiii
  10. knightsicre
  11. mdbraber
  12. anitasamarth
  13. endamadden
  14. philbaumann
  15. scanman
  16. symtym
  17. drval
  18. berci
  19. NurseDan
  20. Geek2Nurse
  21. MedicalQuack
  22. ThatScottGuy
  23. cerro
  24. ekivemark
  25. adistas
  26. HIMSS
  27. markhawker
  28. wjjessen
  29. 6oclockvintage
  30. drrwinters

Phew! I’d originally aimed for a top 20 but soon realised that wasn’t going to be enough. I plumped for a top 30 but there’s still probably a whole wave of people I’ve missed. Thanks for all of your suggestions, and do feel free to leave comments so I can prepare a revised list in the future. Happy tweeting!
