The March journal club was a huge success, especially as our inaugural effort. There were 393 tweets (and 254 retweets) from 84 contributors reaching up to 146,531 followers. The @igsjc itself now has 189 followers from all over the globe.
No surprise, our top contributor was also our invited author, Justin Dimick (@jdimick1). Special mention (and top tweet) goes to Andrew Gonzalez (@DrAGonzMD), who did a de novo analysis of Medicare data in response to a question on twitter, and found that mortality is sig. higher if patients are readmitted following colorectal surgery to a different hospital vs. their index hospital. This may be the 1st scientific paper proposed, analyzed, and peer reviewed on twitter (all in under 5 hours)!
