  • This your site is very helpful for marketer. The story got their attention and since they are not actively following, they just unfollowed you. If it is the case, your are “loosing” followers, but your engagement is increasing

  • I rely on Stat News to publicize facts that challenge many erroneous mainstream assumptions, so I’m disappointed in your one-sided recommendation to follow a medical Twitter account of an “opioid critic” without balancing it with someone advocating for the tens of thousands of pain patients who rely on opioids to sustain some quality of life.

    I suggest adding @LynnRWebsterMD, who is a reasonable pain patient advocate and understands that opioids have a legitimate role for some chronic pain patients.

    • Follow @wheezynurse or whatever it is? Nah.. no thanks. No real medical info, just tweets for laughs mixed with sexism and crap for attention. Better see what these people tweet before recommending them.
