FIRST NASA ASTRONAUT TO SEND LIVE TWEET FROM SPACE HOSTS TWEETUP

WASHINGTON -- NASA invites its Twitter followers to a special Tweetup 
with astronaut T.J. Creamer at 3 p.m. EDT on Thursday, July 29. The 
event will take place in the James E. Webb Memorial Auditorium at 
NASA Headquarters, 300 E St. SW, Washington. 

While in space, Creamer set up the International Space Station's live 
Internet connection. He posted updates about the mission to his 
Twitter account and sent the first live tweet from the orbiting 
outpost. 

A Tweetup is an informal meeting of people who use the social 
messaging medium Twitter. This NASA Tweetup is an opportunity to meet 
and speak with Creamer, the people behind NASA's Twitter account, and 
other space-exploration-minded participants. 

Registration for the event is open from noon EDT, Friday, July 9 until 
5 p.m. on Tuesday, July 13. NASA randomly will select 100 
participants from web registrants. Additional applicants will be 
placed on a waiting list. For more NASA Tweetup information and to

Creamer spent 161 days living aboard the station as part of the 
Expedition 22 and 23 crews. He launched aboard a Soyuz spacecraft in 
December 2009 and returned to Earth June 2, 2010. Creamer's Twitter
