Methods for Determining Top Stem Cell Influencers on Twitter
These influencers above were determined using Topsy, a powerful website tool that delivers social analytics and trends, with the search executed 09-07-2015. The search term “#stemcells” was used, because hashtags identify key topics in the Twitter language system. Topsy’s “Sort by Relevance” tool was utilized, because it accounts for post activity, retweets, favorites, mentions, and other important criteria for gauging a user’s engagement and influence.
The leading Twitter influencer, Stem Cell News (@stemcellnews) has posted more than 45,000 tweets since joining Twitter in 2009 and has used the “#stemcells” hashtag 159 times in the past 30 days alone. It is also not surprising to see Fujifilm (@fujifilmus) at second place on this list, because the company just acquired induced pluripotent stem cell firm Cellular Dynamics International (CDI) for $307 million in March of 2015 and they are actively making known their interest and dedication to advances stem cell research technologies.
