At a meeting in Copenhagen earlier this week Bertalan Mesko was introduced as “the world leader in social media and medicine.” After listening to him and looking at some of his websites I decided that this was not an exaggeration. If you want to be up to the minute on social media and medicine you need to know about Mesko and his works.

Mesko began his journey through social media in 1996 while at medical student in Hungary and has been as known as Dr Twitter since the New York Times described how he used Twitter to make a diagnosis on a 16 year old who had had six episodes of acute pancreatitis.  Mesko is clear that you won’t have such success by sending such a Tweet unless you have put in the work to build up a community of a knowledgeable group of followers whom you trust.
