Doctors Paid to Tweet

Twice last year (March and June) I blogged about doctors who provide medical advice in a tweet. Now I found out that doctors are being paid by pharma companies to tweet about specific medications. And doctors who use social media do not disclose that they have been paid to do so.

So now I am even more on the side of medical advice for me will not come for a tweet. Their impact on my life will be the same as an ad for a pharma product - I ignore them and wait until my doctor tells me about it.
