Tweets from Outer Space
Twitter is now “out of this world.” On May 12, 2009, one of the space shuttle astronauts sent the first tweet from space:
From orbit: Launch was awesome!! I am feeling great, working hard, & enjoying the magnificent views, the adventure of a lifetime has begun!
Mike Massimino had been twittering for about a month about his training. So, a tweet from space was the next step!
