Tweet

I've decided, on the sage advice of a WHS reader, to join the world of Twitter.  I'll be using it to announce new posts, as well as communicating papers that I find interesting, but either don't have time to blog about or think are too technical for a general audience.  My tag is "whsource".  Head on over to Twitter if you want to follow my tweets.

Hi Stephan, Welcome to twitter, I think you'll find it quite addictive. I follow JAMA and the Lancet on there too, it's a great way to keep up with research. My favourite tweeters are Melissa McEwan and Emily Deans, hopefully you'll be as informative as they are!

@Stephan and @SamAbroad Melissa and Emily and ThatPaleoGuy are my favorites. Very witty! Have fun.

Stephan, that Twiiter link only takes me to twitter root, not your stream. Yes, I can figure it out as can a bunch of your readers, but you might want to consider editing it so it goes to your own feed, and yes, Twitter is pretty good.

In other news, the LC, food reward and calories count post is nearing 500 comments. Anthony Colpo blogged about it today. Recorded with Jimmy Moore yesterday, about the LC and Paleo controversy and it airs Tuesday. dropped your name a few times.

Cheers.

Can I convince you of a better path?

If you get on Google+, you'll gain a HUGE audience. Plus you can automatically have all your Google+ posts also posted on Twitter using ManageFlitter.

I'm currently gaining about 7,000 new followers per day. It's incredible.

I suppose I would post this to Twitter, but I have never seen a personal value to it. Maybe you could post your tweets to the blog to save us all the trouble:

Yes, please could you post your tweets here? I don't want to miss anything and I am scared to death of Twitter. I'm told it's addictive like palatable high-fat food.

I have always avoided twitter at all costs, but I just yesterday finally found a reason to use it. After reading Richard Nikoley's posts on food reward i decided to add potatoes and rice to my daily paleo intake and track the results. I saw Richard describe tracking with "fitday", but i found an alternative FitClick.com that let's you "tweet" your meals.
They actually have a human being on the other end that tries to make sense of it and input the data. Response time isn't great but it's a pretty cool service.
