NASA said today it will give 50 of its Twitter followers the chance for a closer look at the next space shuttle mission during a Tweetup Tuesday, November, 9, at the agency’s Johnson Space Center. Space shuttle Discovery is scheduled to launch on an 11-day mission to the International Space Station on Nov. 1 at 4:40 p.m. EDT.

NASA-Space-Shuttle Those who take part in the Tweetup will tour the center; view mission control and astronauts’ training facilities; and speak with managers, flight directors, trainers and astronauts. The participants also will meet the team behind the tweets on @NASA and @NASA_Johnson.

"The Tweetup attendees will get to visit the home of mission control during one of the last two scheduled shuttle flights," said Stephanie Schierholz, social media manager at NASA Headquarters in Washington.

"In addition, they will get to share their experience of the excitement of human spaceflight with their followers around the world."

Registration opens at 10 a.m. EDT on Tuesday, Oct. 26, and closes at 10 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 28. NASA will select participants randomly from those who register online.

    Since I haven’t been able to access any tweets, my own included now since sometime since the 24th of Oct and been getting the “Twitter is over capacity” error whale page ever since then, and all support tickets to Twitter still have not gotten the problem fix, and I see on their Help pages they know about the problem and 100’s of users posting they have the same problem, some saying they have not been able to use the site for over two weeks with this problem..my following Nasa at this time is pointless if i can’t even access their tweets.

    Matter fact I surprised this site has not covered this problem and how much is affecting so many twiiter users who are really not seeing any updatesd from twitter if it will ever be fixed!!
