Study: Tweet chats motivate patients with breast cancer

In an article published in the open-access Journal of Medical Internet Research, a strong majority of participants in Twitter chats about breast cancer reported that the chats “provided a safe and welcoming forum for support and education.” Of the 206 respondents, 93 percent of whom were women, 63 percent said they “strongly agreed” with the “safe and welcoming” statement, while 24 percent “somewhat agreed.”Significantly, more than a quarter of respondents became volunteers or advocates for patients with breast cancer as a result of the #BCSM (for “breast cancer social media”) tweet chats, which started in 2011.
