El uso de plataformas de medios sociales entre los profesionales de la salud está aumentando. Se lanzó una campaña de Twitter en medios sociales para promover el hashtag #colorectalsurgery con el objetivo de proporcionar un foro específico para reunir las discusiones y las ciencias relevantes para una comunidad comprometida y global de coloproctólogos. Este artículo revisa las experiencias iniciales de la adopción temprana, el compromiso y la utilización de esta iniciativa piloto.


El hashtag #colorectalsurgery se promocionó a través del servicio de microblogging en línea Twitter a través de un intervalo de 180 días. Los datos de todos los tweets que contenían la hashtag #colorectalsurgery se analizaron utilizando herramientas analíticas en línea. Los datos incluyeron el número total de tweets, el número de vistas y el compromiso del usuario desde el registro y el lanzamiento de la campaña. Se realizó el contenido del análisis demográfico tweet y usuario.


El número de tweets que utilizan #colorectalsurgery creció rápidamente después del lanzamiento el 24 de abril de 2016; #colorectalsurgery se utilizó en 15 708 tweets, lo que resultó en 65 398 696 impresiones e involucró 1863 cuentas individuales de Twitter. Se observó un aumento en el volumen de tweets #colorectalsurgery en asociación con el calendario de tres importantes conferencias internacionales de cirugía colorrectal y se observaron tendencias geográficas. Alrededor del 88 por ciento de todos los puestos eran de usuarios masculinos. Los 25 usuarios por volumen de tweets #colorectalsurgery tenían una influencia considerable y publicaron 8023 tweets (51,1 por ciento).


Comunidades globales en línea formadas a través de hashtags relacionados con la salud, como #colorectalsurgery, unificar puestos de medios sociales, científicos, cirujanos y autores que tienen interés en la coloproctología. Además, facilitan una mayor conectividad entre usuarios geográficamente separados.

The use of social media platforms among healthcare professionals is increasing. A Twitter social media campaign promoting the hashtag #colorectalsurgery was launched with the aim of providing a specialty-specific forum to collate discussions and science relevant to an engaged, global community of coloproctologists. This article reviews initial experiences of the early adoption, engagement and utilization of this pilot initiative.


The hashtag #colorectalsurgery was promoted via the online microblogging service Twitter across a 180-day interval. Data on all tweets containing the #colorectalsurgery hashtag were analysed using online analytical tools. Data included total number of tweets, number of views, and user engagement since registration and launch of the campaign. Content of tweet and user demographic analysis was undertaken.


The number of tweets using #colorectalsurgery grew rapidly following the launch on 24 April 2016; #colorectalsurgery was used in 15 708 tweets, which resulted in 65 398 696 impressions and involved 1863 individual Twitter accounts. Increased volumes of #colorectalsurgery tweets were noted in association with the timing of three major international colorectal surgical conferences, and geographical trends were noted. Some 88·4 per cent of all posts were by male users. The top 25 users by volume of #colorectalsurgery tweets had considerable influence and posted 8023 tweets (51·1 per cent).


Online global communities formed via healthcare-related hashtags, such as #colorectalsurgery, unify social media posts, scientists, surgeons and authors who have an interest in coloproctology. Furthermore, they facilitate greater connectivity among geographically separate users.

Uno de los motivos por lo cuales tiene tanta actividad este hashtag es debido a que esta especialidad de la cirugía es la que se ocupa del tratamiento del cáncer de colon, una de las patologías cancerígenas más frecuentes en la sociedad occidental.
