NASA Launches Space Campaign On Twitter

Over on the official blog, there’s an announcement about a new campaign from NASA on Twitter, which includes access to astronauts, competitions and more.

Using various Twitter accounts, NASA is giving the world easy-access to their once-exclusive world, offering a look into the science, discovery and everyday life at an agency established in 1958–before most people even had color televisions. (Can you imagine?)

By following NASA and its astronauts on Twitter, you can win tickets to spaceshuttle Tweetups (there happens to be one planned for the launch this month), learn about the latest discoveries, and ask them inquisitive questions like, “why is that funny dance move called the moonwalk?”

Yeah, like that wouldn’t get annoying.

There’s even a video.

If you’re interested in tweets from space, Twitter lists these accounts:

@CassiniSaturn
@Astro_Cady
@Astro_Paolo
@Astro_Ron
@Virgin_Galactic
@NASAWebbTelescp

Other recommended resources for updates and analysis include @wiredscience, Professor Brian Cox, The Discovery Channel and @mythbusters.
