Tweeting From Space

If a space shuttle goes down, you can now blame Twitter. Astronaut Mike Massimino (or Astro_Mike on Twitter) became the first person to tweet from space, while in orbit on a spaceship meant to service the Hubble Telescope.

I was totally kidding about the space shuttle crash, but people really shouldn’t fly and tweet.
