  1. On the morning of May 7, National Institutes of Health Director Francis Collins asked all of Twitter to let him know how sequestration, or across-the-board federal budget cuts, is affecting biomedical research. (For additional coverage of how sequestration will affect NIH, see these stories in CNN Money, the Seattle Times, the L.A. Times, and the ASBMB Policy Blotter.)
  2. Three days later, over 700 tweets have been sent in response to Collins' call. Here's a sampling of those responses.
  3. Many were worried about research that won't be started or completed due to spending cuts.
