If you're asking if it's grammatical, the answer is that it is. At yesterday and on yesterday are not possible in English (although until yesterday, before yesterday and after yesterday are).

This answer is technically correct but I have a feeling the internet is not entirely happy with this yet. I expect to see a lot of constructions like "Rod @ yesterday" and so on as the online culture looks for a more readable solution. – MrHen Jan 3 '12 at 14:38
