In January 2016, NCOH’s own bilingual Twitter account, @ncohnl, was registered. With investigators in the field of one health as a primary target group, via this Twitter account relevant developments in the context of one health are highlighted.
By the end of 2018 the account had approximately 675 followers and close to 500 tweets had been sent out.
