People who use Twitter a lot:
The twitterati were quickly able to communicate news on the subject.
The Digital Health Week 2023 Twitterati is made up of ten researchers in digital health. Over the course of Digital Health Week 2023 they will be sharing their reflections, experiences, and questions with the community on Twitter. We thank them all immensely for their support, involvement, and expertise. We encourage you to learn more about them and interact with them! #DigitalHealthWeek23
