These accounts used the social media platform to inform Canadians about the pandemic and give real-time updates as the country moved through the first and second waves.

That includes Dr. Tam, the country's top doctor.

Twitter said that her account was one of five this year that "especially stood out."

The Ontario Medical Association, Ottawa Public Health, the Government of Newfoundland and Dr. Deena Hinshaw, Chief Medical Officer of Alberta, were also named the top public health accounts.

While Twitter did something new for the 2020 year in review by putting a spotlight on health, it still included top entertainment and sports accounts.
