We at __The Scientist__ are all a-flitter because we're now on Twitter. Starting this week, you can sign up to receive our "tweets" at twitter.com/TheScientistLLC. Twitter is a simple messaging service that allows users to share brief text updates -- otherwise known as tweets -- of up to 140 characters. (The last sentence was exactly 140 characters.) Readers can receive Twitter posts on the Web, on their mobile phones, via instant messaging, RSS feeds, Facebook, and various Twitter-dedicated applications.

__The Scientist__ plans to use this micro-blogging service to alert you of breaking stories as they happen. Why wait for tomorrow's daily e-mail when you can be alerted to the news right now? We also hope our Twitter hub will help readers stay connected, allowing you to let each other know what you're doing in the lab and elsewhere. Signing up is easy. Just go to our linkurl:Twitter site,;http://www.twitter.com/TheScientistLLC register...
