Those days are gone when we used to tell twitter is an Earth friendly service. No, its proved wrong now. TJ Creamer, a NASA scientist made history by sending the first tweet directly from the International Space Station.
His first tweet is as follows:
Hello Twitterverse! We r now LIVE tweeting from the International Space Station — the 1st live tweet from Space! 🙂 More soon, send your ?s
TJ Creamer has made history only because of NASA’s efforts to upgrade their software. This upgrade gave the International Space Station for direct access to the Web which has never happened before with what NASA calls the “Ultimate Wireless Connection”.
Before this upgrade tweets were sent down to the station in Earth and then had posted to twitter. There are many people who tweeted this way but with the software upgrade now astronauts can send it directly to twitter.
TJ Creamer was first to do so and rightly will be remembered for this!!
