Story time, Twitter peeps. Buckle up. This one's special. #tweetstory
So... once a month we have Men's Night at our church where we do a dinner and devotional and just hang out. Free food and sports talk are foundational to any room called a "fellowship hall".
But my wife works Tuesday nights, and I'm on daddy duty. So my 3-year-old daughter just tags along, sits in the corner, colors, eats, etc. But tonight... tonight was Fried Taco Night. 🌮🌮🌮

My recent DNA #nucleobase etymology thread turned out to be surprisingly popular. So now let's do the amino acids -- #HematologyTweetstory 12. This pretty chart of the #aminoacids is from “BioNinja”:…
Knowing word origins isn't essential to using terms well, but these histories can be interesting and illuminating. So, while you may not be a bodybuilder💪🏋️‍♂️🏋️‍♀️ who eats amino acids to bulk up, you can read #HematologyTweetstory 12 to build up your “body of knowledge". 😉

#HematologyTweetstory #6: the ‘pawn ball megakaryocyte’. We’ll revisit Dr. Frankenstein from Tweetstory #1, discover the origin of Santa Claus, and travel from Boston to Las Vegas – a flight the clever guys from the MIT Blackjack Team used to make every Friday. #hematopathology/1
‘Pawn ball’ megakaryocytes have 3 distinct nuclear lobes; this is abnormal. The first reference I’ve found that uses this term is a 1984 @BloodJournal paper by David Rosenthal & William C. Moloney (1907-1991). Dr Rosenthal @DanaFarber led @Harvard Health Services until 2011/2
Moloney, who became the champion of the 'pawn ball meg.' concept, came from @TuftsMedicalCtr & the old Boston City Hospital to become hematology chief at Peter Bent Brigham Hospital (now @BrighamWomens) in 1966. He continued to work until he turned 90 in 1997. @BrighamHeme /3
