The #MRX community loves its Top 10 lists. How do I know? Because of the Top 10 most-shared links, 3 were themselves 10-item lists!
Of the 313,072 unique links shared on #MRX so far this year, here are 10 of the most retweeted…

Note: This list is ordered by the relative measure of each link’s influence over the year. Links to past conferences and to automated weekly newspapers were omitted. A link’s influence is a tally of the influence of each Twitter user who shared the link and tagged it #MRX, ignoring retweets from closely related accounts. Only links with a research angle are considered. Sorry, Bollywood!
