Mike Massimino – 1st NASA Astronaut on Twitter ? Yes !

So, Mike Massimino is Mission Specialist on NASA STS-125 and is, I believe, the first active NASA astronaut to be actively twittering…

I wonder if his Twitters from space will still be met with the dreaded “Twitter is over capacity” message, or if there will be some sort of prioritized VPN between the NASA space vehicles and the better Web 2.0 sites.

Correction: I think Twittering from outer space counts as Web 3.0
