It's rare that we go an hour or two without something happening that deserves a post. In space, people can see you tweet!
It happens, especially during live mission events such as launch or a spacewalk. We work to find that "Goldilocks Zone" for tweets.
As different as it was 10 years ago, except more so.
Why choose? Both provide valuable services and potential. Use both!
Share. If you follow people and they're providing interesting information, share those posts. Go retweet crazy!
Any organization charged with publicly sharing its mission.
The first tweets from an astronaut in space, Mike Massimino (@Astro_Mike).
As @VeronicaMcG said when she nominated us, name another agency that promises you the moon(s) and delivers?
After you get over 200k followers, it's difficult to spotlight any one individual. Anyone who appreciates exploration and discovery.
Certainly the way people share information is changing. Revolution is an overused word but information exchange is evolving quickly!
It's no longer about simply sharing information. The speed and formats with which that information is shared is more important now.
@MarsPhoenix and how the creative folks at JPL, especially @VeronicaMcG, posted first-person tweets during the mission.
To keep things manageable, we work to follow NASA-related twitter feeds. We've never had to unfollow anyone.
@NASA is our professional life. We use it to share mission developments and other agency activities.
Agencies and people who don't respond to followers. This has to be a two-way conversation or you're wasting your time.
Seeing the large number of non-space related Twitter users who are really interested in what we do, like the band McFly and @tommcfly.
Real people tweet and we try to provide links to supporting information and media. No one else on Earth has our imagery and content.
We'll leave software and interface development to the Twitter professionals.
There's really just one -- public support. Without the interest and the inspiration or our followers, the rest is relatively meaningless.
People geeking out during coverage of space shuttle launches and other mission activities. They can get really excited.
Relax. Be relevant. Have fun and don't take yourself too seriously.
Anything NASA related.
Because it's another way we can share our story directly with people and not rely on a traditional media filter.
The work. There aren't a lot of organizations empowered to dream big and then work to make those dreams come true.
Anything can be shortened.
