The Healthcare Social Graph provides information about influential Twitter accounts during the last 52 weeks. 

Any Twitter account that is found to be in the top 100 influencers as ranked by the Healthcare Social Graph Score of any healthcare-related hashtags or keywords/phrases is revealed in this chart. 

An account that is not found in this database has never been in the top 100 lists during the last 52 weeks. This ranking is updated once a week, so for the most recent data there can be a delay of up to 7 days.

To view a users' Healthcare Social Graph, enter the Twitter handle of a user and click on Launch. A new browser tab will open with the results, as in the screenshots below.

The first section will be the Twitter account details:

On the left are the name, location, website, and Signals stakeholder group.

On the right is the account biography summary.

Below are the statistics of Healthcare Social Graph Score, Tweets, Followers, and Following.


The next section contains the charts of the Healthcare Social Graph score:

The Social Media Impact tab displays two datasets:

  1. Each circle represents a conversation. The conversation topic is displayed over the circle. The size of the circle represents the significance of the conversation. The color of the circle represents the type of conversation (see legend below the chart. The location of the circle is a product of the impact of the conversation (high to low, using the left side vertical axis) and the date of the conversation over the past 52 weeks (left to right).
  2. The line represents how the Healthcare Social Graph score has changed over the last 52 weeks, using the right side vertical axis to quantify the score.

Click on one of the five data types in the legend below the graph to view data only of that type (HSG Score, Hashtags, Conferences, Tweet Chats, and Keywords).

Hover your cursor over one of the bubbles to display the topic, when the conversation began, the influence rank, and the volume of tweets that specific week.

Click on "Open Influencer widget for week" to view the Influencers list in Signals. Click here to see the help article on this section of the Signals Dashboard.

Click on "Remove" to remove this conversation from the dataset. Refresh your browser to restore this conversation to the dataset.

To view a portion of the chart in more detail, click and drag your mouse to highlight the area you wish to review. The highlighted section will expand to full screen. Click on "Reset zoom" in the upper right to return to the original 52-week view.


The HSG Score in Perspective tab displays the account's Healthcare Social Graph score in relation to all other HSG scores (currently over 9 million users).

The bars represent the number of users with Healthcare Social Graph scores in those ranges. Hovering over each bar will display the score range and the number of profiles with scores in that range.


The next section displays two additional data illustrations.

The Topical Influences chart includes the same data in the Social Media Impact chart above and displays the topics in order of their usage and influence within this account 's activity over the past 52 weeks. The size and location of the box as well as the color shade indicate the strength of influence within this account. The top left corner includes the most influential, with influence decreasing across and down to the lower right. Clicking on a box will pop-up the hashtags associated with this topic.

The Dataset Types chart is yet another format of this data, displaying the volume of data by type (conference, tweet chat, hashtag, keyword). As with the Topical Influences, clicking on a bar will pop-up the hashtags associated with this data type.
