NASA's Mars Phoenix Twitter Keeps Space Buffs Informed
Posted on May 26, 2008NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory has made one of the best uses of Twitter to date with its MarsPhoenix Twitter. The MarsPhoenix Twitter kept tweeting - from the lander's point of view - during the final approach to Mars. There were some exciting moments as everyone hoped the landing would be a success.
Robert Scoble blogged that Mars didn't make the Techmeme front page but this one-line entry on TechCrunch did make it on Techmeme. Techmeme's algoritihms must not have found many people linking to Mars-related posts over the Memorial Day holiday? Scoble also points to a FriendFeed search that shows lots of Mars updates but the best Mars action has been on Twitter on the MarsPhoenix account.
