Hello, tweets.

Having followed the Arkansas and Florida “rediscoveries” and the failure to have had anything come of them, I’m afraid I’m no more convinced by this one, after having read the preprint paper word for word. Alex Lees’ argument makes complete sense (even though I’m a little surprised that Twitter is the news medium he felt was the best place to present it).
