There are more ways than ever to communicate science discoveries. For people who soak up the latest discoveries and gadgets, it's an exciting time. A few months ago, I attended a National Science Foundation conference on using social media to spread science news. The leaders emphasized Twitter as a real time way to spread science cheer. As part of the two day event, we all practiced and promised to tweet "all science, all the time." I have gotten better about Twitter, but still have room for improvement.
Recently, I spotted Ph.D. Comics' fun list of tweets that could have been written by scientists from the past. Enjoy and share some of your own! Historical Science Tweets
