Science tweeted live by a killer of Pluto

On June 11, 2011, astronomer Mike Brown of Caltech, otherwise known as @plutokiller, took the unconventional step of releasing observations he was making of dwarf planet Haumea live in real time over Twitter. On June 16, I interviewed Brown, again over Twitter, about the science of his observations, and his decision to release them live. You can read a blog post about this and the archived twinterview on Nature’s website.
