I was pretty excited to see the first tweet from space from Engineer T.J. Creamer from on board the International Space Station. I became a fan of Astro_TJ on Twitter.
Astronauts aboard the International Space Station received a special software upgrade this week – personal access to the Internet and the World Wide Web via the ultimate wireless connection.
Expedition 22 Flight Engineer T.J. Creamer made first use of the new system Friday when he posted the first unassisted update to his Twitter account, @Astro_TJ, from the space station.
