Here's who topped Twitter at AUA 2015


This slideshow roundup includes some of the most prominent Twitter participants from AUA 2015 (along with a sampling of their tweets).

The 2015 AUA annual meeting in New Orleans featured myriad educational and social opportunities for attendees. As has been the case in recent years, Twitter provided another avenue for information and interaction for both those attending the meeting in person and those following the proceedings remotely. The AUA offered Twitter training throughout the meeting, and BJU International held a social media awards ceremony. Here's a roundup of some of the most prominent Twitter participants from AUA 2015 (along with a sampling of their tweets), as determined from symplur's top influencers by mentions (from May 15-20, excluding accounts for organizations/journals).
