Now On Twitter!

Following a highly motivating APS talk about science in popular culture by Neil deGrasse Tyson, I decided to join Twitter. I’m hoping to do ~1 tweet per week of a sciencey nature, similar to what Neil does. I don’t think I’ll reach his level of coolness, but I’ll try. Follow me at @drhray!
