What's Gates doing on Twitter? Tweeting, pretty much like every one else, about whatever crossed his mind. Among his first posts were links to his new website www.thegatesnotes.com, and also a link to his notes about his 2009 tour of India and his first hand experiences at health clinics he visited in Uttar Pradesh.
