Motivation

  • It's fun :-)
  • information can be filtered including/discarding the holder of the account on tweeter.

Examples

Two proteins interact

 @anaccount gi:41019505 MI:0407 gi:255458

Add a reference to this interaction

 @anaccount twitter:1058290564 anotherprefix:has_reference pmid:9755181

Todo

  • creating an account
  • defining the namespaces
  • writing a specification
  • call for participation
  • build the tools (exporting, queries...)
  • write a paper!
