Abstract

Social media (SM) engagement by healthcare professionals has been well described but in previous studies, colorectal surgeons have notably lower engagement with SM platforms such as Twitter (3.1%), and LinkedIn (37.1%) (1). Recent analysis of oncology hashtags has also reported that colorectal cancer was one of the least engaged hashtag, compared with other organ-related oncology hashtags (2).
