NIH Joins Twitter

Looking for a quick, easy way to track funding opportunities from the National Institutes of Health? Try Twitter.

In mid-March NIH began using the social networking and blogging service to provide information about funding opportunities. Using Twitter, NIH will post links to Funding Opportunity Announcements in a condensed format, about the size of a typical text message. The Institute will “tweet” announcements once a week. (Twitter enables users to send and read other users’ updates known as tweets. Tweets are text-based posts that can be accessed via the Twitter website, RSS feeds, cell phone text message systems, and similar services.) NIH is also using Twitter to post general health news updates.
