Approx 5,000 active Twitter user accounts in the UK discussing the National Health Service (NHS) on the 11th of March 2013. Most tweets are directed to @Jeremy_Hunt Conservative MP for South West Surrey and Secretary of State for Health – but does he reply? or is he even reading the tweets?

 updated the #NHS  and NHS Twitter User account number to 11,000 to create this image. As there are over 400,000 tweets associated with the 11,000 users I think my data my have a number of multiple counts for the same tweets. Something I can look at in the future – removing similar content.
