PURPOSE: Social media sites such as Twitter can significantly enhance education and advocacy efforts. A “Twitter chat” is an online, real-time discussion that occurs on Twitter around a specific hashtag. These chats are fast moving, open to all, and scheduled in advance with pre-planned topics of discussion. In 2013, the American College of Chest Physicians (CHEST) launched a Twitter chat using the hashtag #pulmcc to educate and advocate for topics related to pulmonary, critical care and sleep medicine.
