We all knew that Twitter was “taking off”, but who would have expected tweets from space?! Sorry, the puns are just too easy.  Mashable is calling Astronaut Mike Massimino’s tweets, “One giant leap for Twitterkind.”  His first tweet read, “From orbit: Launch was awesome!! I am feeling great, working hard, & enjoying the magnificent views, the adventure of a lifetime has begun!”

astro-mike Mike is on a maintenance mission to service the Hubble Space Telescope.  According to Mashable, “with the blessing of NASA, Massimino’s tweets will serve to enlighten his 234,240 followers and add a layer of transparency that we’ve yet to behold.”

Of course all of Twitterkind would love to see some Twitpics too!  Follow @Astro-Mike to learn even more about this mission and to be part of Twitter history.
