To Boldly Tweet Where No Man Has Tweeted Before...

Twitter is all the rage these days with the kids and those nutty celebrities.   Here's an example of recent tweet from Rainn Wilson of 'The Office': 
 rainnwilson Waitress: 'Do u have any questions about the menu?' Me: 'What kind of font is this?' 
I know!  Fun and informative.  I do want to know what font it was.  Well, how about something new.  "What can possibly be new on the interwebs?"  Ohhhh… I dunno, how about getting a tweet FROM SPACE!  Not cyber space…. Space space!  The final frontier.  All you have to do is follow @Astro_Mike on Twitter.  Mike is Space Shuttle Astronaut Mike Massimino.  I believe he is the first person ever to tweet from outside the Earth's atmosphere.  So what exactly does one tweet about when you are on a  shuttle mission?  Here's some of his recent tweets:
Astro_Mike From orbit: Getting more accustomed to living in space today and getting ready for our big rendezvous with hubble 

Astro_Mike From orbit: Launch was awesome!! I am feeling great, working hard, & enjoying the magnificent views, the adventure of a lifetime has begun! 

Astro_Mike I'm going to put my spacesuit on, next stop: Earth Orbit!! 

Astro_Mike Final check with the doctors, getting ready for breakfast. We launch today!!

Astro_Mike I'll tweet when I can from orbit, but it might not be much, follow us after the launch 24/7 on NASA TV, www.nasa.gov/ntv and NASA twitter
I don't know about you kids, but I think that's pretty cool.  What say you?
