College of Chemistry editor Michael Barnes is now tweeting chemistry and other science news. Barnes gets several press releases and other news items via email every day, and he has been looking for a way to share them with alums who want to keep up the the latest science news.
Says Barnes, "Twitter is not just for celebrities posting pictures of themselves. Many science organizations like ACS and AAAS tweet their science news. I started by tweeting food items related to the last issue of Catalyst magazine, but now I post a variety of things—as long as they are about science and they are interesting." He already has 40 tweets posted, so he urges you to get on twitter and check them out: twitter.com/coc_guy.
