New Idea: Use Twitter for Daily Q&A for Board Preparation

During our meeting at the 2008 ACAAI conference, Tao Le shared that The First Aid team was planning to use Twitter for daily Q&A sessions. They just launched them yesterday:

Once we post the answer, feel free to discuss the concept by posting your tweets here. Happy studying! P.S.- It starts on Monday.

Questions will be posted at 7:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. (PST). The answers will be posted 30 minutes after we post the questions.

Hello and welcome to the first ever attempt at USMLE Step 1 board prep through Twitter.
