A total of 4208 tweetations were identified, which cited a total of 286 distinct JMIR articles, with each article receiving on average 14 tweetations (median 9). However, these averages should be interpreted with care, as JMIR has published articles since 1999 (560 articles in total). Among the 286 articles referenced in tweetations, there were many articles that were published before data collection began or before Twitter even existed. As these older articles receive only sporadic tweetations, the average and median are not reflective of more recent articles.
Tweets can predict highly cited articles within the first 3 days of article publication.
... there is a real danger that research topics or findings that are not trendy enough to resonate with the Twitter population--for example, research affecting disadvantaged populations that are not represented on Twitter--are marginalized.
