If your on Twitter and are looking for tweets on heart disease here are the ones I follow and found to be worth keeping an eye on. Not all are specific only to heart related material, some are general medical info. I have done my best to categorize them to make it a little easier to find what you are looking or. If you have others please let me know or post a comment for others to see. You can also search via a hashtag. When in Twitter search for #heart, #heartattack (yes all 1 word), #cardiac, #stent, #openheart, #cardiology to name a few. Just put “#” in front of any topic (word or words) you want to search out info for.
