Social Media is a rising influence in the global world of cardiovascular medicine, allowing for a dynamic approach to physician education, research dissemination and collaborative discussion. The visual nature of social media platforms, particularly Twitter, lends itself particularly well to the tremendous advances and stunning visuals of cardiac imaging. The hashtag “#cardiotwitter” provides around the clock, asynchronous, ubiquitous, free education. It allows connection among cardiac imagers across the world to share ideas and discuss contemporary issues pertaining to multimodality imaging. This review highlights the role of social media in advancing the practice of cardiac imaging and provides guidance on gaining visibility in the social media imaging community.
