Exploring new landmarks: analysis of Twitter usage during the 41st ESNR Annual Meeting
We analyzed the use of Twitter during the 41st Annual Meeting of the European Society of Neuroradiology (ESNR) held in Rotterdam from 19 to 23 September 2018. The aim was to check the status of the European neuroradiology Twitter community and to discover which topics were discussed most often. The data were compared with a similar analysis performed during the Annual Meeting of the American Society of Neuroradiology (ASNR) in 2014. Even though the analysis demonstrated a low use of Twitter during the ESNR meeting, the platform still generated an important volume of impressions and engagement. This use was noted by the global community because topics of the meeting, such as the value of radiological reporting and advanced imaging, were discussed worldwide. These data, also compared to the American meeting, suggests a need for more prolific use and engagement with ESNR social media accounts in order to draw our members into discussions during meetings and to reinforce the place of European neuroradiology in the debate on key imaging topics as well as promoting society events.
