Methodology notes:

  • In May 2024, CREATION Pinpoint® identified 10,911 posts on X (Twitter) from 4,156 individual eHCPs mentioning a Top 50 Pharmaceutical company (based on revenue). 
  • Data for this research was analysed from the online X conversations of eHCPs in all languages mentioning a Top 50 Pharmaceutical company between 01 – 31 May 2024.
  • Unless otherwise specified, mentions of a company are not limited to its X account(s).
  • In some cases, a post may mention more than one company account (e.g. @abbottnews and @abbottglobal) – this only counts as one Company Mention and Account Mention.
  • Johnson & Johnson was included as a whole, encompassing its pharmaceutical subsidiary, Johnson & Johnson Innovative Medicine (previously Janssen). In May 2024, 83 of these posts mentioned Johnson & Johnson Innovative Medicine or Janssen.
