Twittering for Proteins

It's time to harness the true power of Twitter, people -- for building a collaborative protein-protein interaction database, of course. At Yokofakun, Pierre Lindenbaum instructs on how to do so. He says that by using Omnee, called the 'first organic directory for Twitter,' and creating an account just for interactome tweets, users could send tweets to this account with additional data. He's written short proof-of-concept code and displays sample interactome output, with each interaction containing a reference to the author, the proteins, the date, and the attached Pubmed-id article.
