Pt 2478
Tweeting from weird places (like a space station) is the new “I installed linux on a weird thing”… Next up, the space station will tweet on its own…

Expedition 22 Flight Engineer T.J. Creamer made first use of the new system Friday, when he posted the first unassisted update to his Twitter account, @Astro_TJ, from the space station. Previous tweets from space had to be e-mailed to the ground where support personnel posted them to the astronaut’s Twitter account.
