The Shorty Interview with NASA

How long can you go without a tweet?

It's rare that we go an hour or two without something happening that deserves a post. In space, people can see you tweet!

Ever get called out for tweeting too much?

It happens, especially during live mission events such as launch or a spacewalk. We work to find that "Goldilocks Zone" for tweets.

What will the world be like 10 years from now?

As different as it was 10 years ago, except more so.

Twitter or Facebook?

Why choose? Both provide valuable services and potential. Use both!
