This article describes the metrics and terms related to the free analytics available on the Healthcare Hashtag Project.


The total number of unique tweets.


The total number of unique accounts that have tweeted at least once.


The total number of impressions. Impressions indicate the theoretical maximum number of Twitter users a given tweet could have directly reached in followers timeline, not counting indirect impressions from embedded tweets on websites, tv, prints, or other mediums or impressions from non-Twitter users.
The number is computed by taking the number of times an account has tweeted multiplied by the account's number of followers repeated for all accounts, then finally summed up.


SymplurRank orders influential accounts by measuring the number of quality mentions received. The quality of a mention is determined by the account who gave it and that account’s own influence on the topic at hand, its healthcare stakeholder status, and its overall influence in healthcare social media.
