4 January 2022: #PathOutPic Twitter Campaign

PathologyOutlines is publicizing the use of the Twitter hashtag #pathoutpic to identify possible histopathology images from Twitter to post in our online textbook. If you tweet high quality histopathology images and are willing to grant us permission to use these images on PathologyOutlines.com, please include the #pathoutpic hashtag in your tweet.

Every few weeks, our image representative will search Twitter for posts with this hashtag. The image representative will select the best images based on image quality (good focus, white balance, visually interesting, etc.), appropriate and reasonable associated text (i.e. the tweet) and whether the image is useful for the appropriate topic(s). This decision is solely within the discretion of the image representative. Not all images with the hashtag will be selected. We will only consider hashtags on the original tweets; users cannot give permission for images they do not own.

In general, images will be posted in the appropriate topic under a header that states “Contributed by @[username] on Twitter” with the diagnosis as the image caption and the Twitter post as the image legend. A URL link to the Twitter post will be included. We may also retweet the original posts with the selected image.

We give permission to the image owner to use the image in other publications, as long as this does not restrict the use of the image on our website. If users post an image with the hashtag but later wish to revoke permission for our site to post the image, they may contact us separately.
