ZooBank already has an RSS feed; would a separate Twitter feed be useful?  How best to use the 140 characters?  A core ZooBank URL is minimally 55 characters ("http://zoobank.org/" + 36 characters for the UUID -- though we could strip the dashes and make it 51 characters total).  How best to use the remaining characters?

Please bear in mind that I only vaguely understand what Twitter is.... (I develop sophisticated databases, and cutting-edge diving technology; but I'm a total luddite when it comes to social media).
