AMA vs. Sermo on Twitter

The AMA (American Medical Association) has been working hard to leverage social media for its organization. Sermo is naturally a social media platform: a physician-only forum. Twitter is getting quite popular these days. So how many followers do the AMA and Sermo have?
For comparison, let's take a look at my Twitter profile:
When will the AMA and Sermo launch a major initiative to grow their Twitter follower counts? Maybe they already have done what they can do. Maybe the AMA has leveraged so many followers because they also market their organization to medical students and residents. Sermo is only open to licensed U.S. physicians.

Well, at the end of the day, it's interesting to see how the use of Twitter is evolving, even in the professional world of healthcare.
