To keep it non political, and simple, tweet the LSID's as a daily new
papers. along with the Family name to make it obvious what group is
discussed. People can click the link for details. No need to use all the
characters, just keep it simple.

Was not saying this should be done by the way, just an option based on what
Doug was saying. Not everyone uses RSS, likewise not everyone uses Twitter.
However tweeting the LSID's may encourage journals to register with Zoobank
better as it will be effective advertising for them.

Cheers, Scott
