Mktg – Nasa invites Twitterers for Atlantis liftoff

CAPE CANAVERAL: NASA is inviting its Twitter followers to the next space shuttle launch. Nasa to smash craft into Moon

The shuttle Atlantis was moved to the launch pad Wednesday for its planned liftoff on November 12. The shuttle will deliver more goods to the International Space Station.

For the first time ever, Nasa is holding a liftoff Tweetup. The first 100 Nasa Twitter followers who sign up will get a tour of Kennedy Space Centre and a front-row seat for Atlantis’ launch. Registration opens Friday.

Nasa has had Tweetups before, but never for a shuttle launch. Nasa says it wants to share the excitement of a shuttle launch with a new audience. Astronauts have been filing Twitter updates since spring, from both earth and orbit.
