FYI: “Tweetations” and “Twimpact Factors”

We missed this article in 2011 when it was first published, but think it’s worth calling to our readers’ attention.  We bet it’s got a lot of “tweetations”!

Eysenbach G. Can tweets predict citations? Metrics of social impact based on Twitter and correlation with traditional metrics of scientific impact. J Med Internet Res. 2011 Dec 19;13(4):e123.  PMID: 22173204

Visit Google Scholar for more on tweetations and twimmpact.
