SciTwitter – Proof that it’s a thing and it’s useful!

An awesome book recently came out called Prokaryotic Cytoskeletons.

Like with all papers that I like, I tweeted it out to promote the book, but with a very mild critique “Not a fan of the title”.

This storify shows the SciTwitter explosion that happened next!
