Neuropathology Blog Starts Twittering

At the suggestion of the reader Library Staffer, and inspired by Digital Pathology Blog as well as Dr. Doug Shevlin, Neuropathology Blog has gone Twitter. My periodic tweets will appear on this blog in the right-hand column; and, conversely, blog post titles (with a link to the post) will appear on my Twitter account. Twittering is a trend that cannot be resisted: The New York Times calls Twitter "one of the fastest-growing phenomena on the Internet." Who am I to swim against the tide?

David Pogue did a great review of Twitter in the New York Times.

Thanks, JD. Pogue did an interesting experiment which he describes on his blog where, in front of an audience of 1000, he Twittered live by asking a question: "I need a cure for hiccups… RIGHT NOW! Help?” He got many, many responses immediately. It was amusing and interesting and showed the wonderful power of Web 2.0!

Here's the link to Pogue's post:

Pathologists or neuroscientist needed to approve and serve as PI for important proposals to The National Institute of Health. These proposal focus on deciphering and reversing chronic neuro diseases from a cytopathology perspective. Work at home from your computer. We have written serveral major proposals for the NIH that were funded at many University Research Centers. Please write cytologyresearch@aol.com
