Migraine trending on Twitter for 3 days

BLOG: Graue Substanz

Migräne aus der technischen Forschungsperspektive von Gehirnstimulatoren zu mobilen Gesundheitsdiensten.
Graue Substanz

On my way back to Germany with my flight being delayed, I have some time to write about the International Headache Congress that I’ve visited here in Boston.

We had many good talks, some about still unpublished data, so I’d rather not write about these research topics here—and my flight is anyway not that much delayed.

But one thing is quite remarkable, the hashtags #IHC2013 and #migraine were trending on Twitter for three days.

On the last IHC2011 in Berlin, there were hardly any tweets (as far as I remember only from @ahsheadache and @daviddodick). This time, some people behind @ahsheadache (see picture above) tweeted also individually, @bertvargas, @randoc01, @mrobbinsmd, @rashmihalker, and many more joined. Maybe most notably @petergoadsby, @AllanPurdy, @eloder (Elizabeth Loder), @DawnBuse, @dr_j_pavlovic and @TobiasKurth are the ones that I can truly recommend to follow on Twitter (including the aforementioned), if you have an interest in migraine research. (Sorry, if I forgot somebody …).

Hope to see many of you on the next EHMTIC2014—too long a hashtag, though—in Copenhagen.

  1. Thank you Dr. Dahlem for this wonderful write up. And thank you for contributing your Tweets and research to the meeting too! It was a pleasure to meet you and I look forward to continuing our Tweeting at IHC 2014! Hope you made it home safely.
