Comparative discoveries were seen in urology, where programs with more dynamic Twitter accounts were related with higher USNWR notoriety scores. Programs with expanded web-based entertainment presence might find true success at graduated class exceeds and requesting surveys that can eventually add to higher standing scores [5].
