Microbiology on Twitter?

Just for fun, I searched Twitter using some microbial-related terms (not many, as the query cannot be more than 140 characters long!). I have added an RSS feed for this query to the side bar on this blog.

[Note (added on 15th Nov): I removed the RSS feed from the side bar -- the automated search was not very useful]

Is Twitter useful for scientists or for science educators? For some, it seems to be.

Will Twitter (or a similar tool) be of general use among scientists in a near future? Perhaps.

As a new user, I know very little about Twitter. But interesting things are happening there.

I just find difficult to make sense out of most of them...

But I´ll keep trying.

And you should, too.

On Twitter, I am TwistedBacteria (obvious). But, definitely, you should be following at least MicroBytes and MicrobeWorld.

I also created a Twibe (a group of Twitter users interested in a common topic) called Microbiology.

(Thanks so much to Alan Cann for introducing me to the Twitter universe!)
