Quite an active tweetchat today on Insulin and Social Media with patients and researchers.

Doctors 2.0 & You is partnering with LexisNexis BIS  Life Sciences researchers to produce ISMOR, Insulin Social Media Original Research in time for Doctors 2.0 & You, June 6-7, 2013, we decided to set up a tweetchat early in the process to see what interests social media types, patients and others, on the subject.

For one intense hour on the #doctors20 hashtag, we tweeted in English and French between England and France, primarily, given the hour we chose. You can see on the left how our #doctors20 just soared upward and onward.

Some of the subjects raised by patients were insulin and: pregnancy, bolus, side effects, DAFNE (UK), IF (France). The interest of all sorts of resources was noted: official sources, patient education, social media…PWD (patients with diabetes) already meet weekly in the UK online thanks to @thegbdoc on Twitter and soon to come in France, thanks to @afd_75

We’d love for you to glance at the transcript from beginning to end in chronological order
