Autism & Health Care Twitter Day, Dec. 23 - Obama Wants to Know

December 16th there was a highly successful discussion and community building session held via Twitter (the social microblogging tool) on the topic of Autism. This conversation was so successful that the person designated to write an advisory report about autism for Obama's transition team has elected to use the same model for a discussion of what is important for President-Elect Obama and his team to know about autism.
