Paul Allen is on Twitter, tweets about research, Seahawks, rellenos

Microsoft co-founder turned entrepreneur and Seahawks owner Paul Allen is getting a bit more public.

He has started Twittering, with a post on Sept. 22 that offers a glimpse into the secret life of the Mercer Island billionaire:

“In Kona working on the book …. and Adriana has killer rellenos…”

Allen was presumably referring to his memoir, which is being published by Penguin Group, and Adriana’s Mexican Food.

Today he posted an item about a symposium at the Allen Institute for Brain Science, and gave kudos to Seahawks fans and coach Pete Carroll:

“We couldn’t have done it Sunday without the crowd. Chargers saw what the 12th Man is all about. Congrats coach.”

Among the people Allen’s following on the service are his old pal Bill Gates, Richard Branson, Al Gore, Peter Gabriel, Rufus Wainwright, Carroll and players on his teams: the Seahawks’ Matt Hasselbeck and the Blazers’ Greg Oden and Brandon Roy.
