Readers of TAXACOM like me who have no life, sorry, who are "down with  
the kids" and do the social media thing might like to know that  
TAXACOM is now on Twitter as @taxacom. I figured that there's no such  
thing as bad publicity.

I've still a few bugs to iron out, but the Twitter feed is based on http://taxacom.markmail.org 
, so each tweet has a link to the conversation thread on that site.

If you don't use Twitter you might be surprised to find who (and what)  
is using it. In addition to several regular contributors to TAXACOM,  
journals such as Systematic Biology, Zootaxa, Zookeys, and Phytokeys,  
as well as projects such Wikispecies, BHL, EDIT, and ViBRANT all post  
regular updates to Twitter.

One feature I could add is replacing people's names with their Twitter  
user name. If anybody would like this please send me an email with  
their name and Twitter user name.
