Bridging the Digital Divide at NASA

NASA Ames will be hosting a Tweetup February 11, 2011!

The event will provide NASA Twitter followers the opportunity to speak with scientists and Center leadership. The Tweetup will include a “meet and greet” session to allow participants to mingle with fellow Tweeps and some of the Ames staff behind the tweets on @NASA, @NASA_Ames, @NASAKepler, @SOFIAtelescope, @NASA_OOREOS, @IceBridge and more!

What is a Tweetup?
A Tweetup is an informal meeting of people who use the social messaging medium Twitter. This Tweetup is an opportunity at NASA’s Ames Research Center in California.

How do I register?
Registration opens at 10 a.m. PST / 1 p.m. EST on Wednesday, Jan. 5, 2011, on this page. It closes at 10 a.m. PST / 1 p.m. EST on Monday, Jan. 10. NASA will accommodate 100 active tweeps randomly selected from those who sign up online. Additional registrants will be placed on a waiting list.

Do I need to have a Twitter account to register?
Yes. This event is designed for Twitter users who follow @NASA, @NASATweetup and other NASA Twitter accounts. The goal of NASA Tweetups is to allow people who regularly interact with each other via Twitter to meet in person and discuss one of their favorite subjects: NASA.

If you are not familiar with Twitter or a regular user of Twitter and want to visit NASA, the NASA Ames Exploration Center at Moffett Field is free and open to the public regularly.

The Twitter account for the Tweetup is @NASATweetup, and the hashtag is #NASATweetup. We’ll use both to post updates and reminders about the event.
