1. We use social media to directly connect the public with the work that is being done on the International Space Station. Twitter allows us to have two-way conversations, while a blog dedicated to science on the ISS allows us to push more robust content out. I was also one of the presenters at the STS-135 Tweetup.
2. I volunteered to lead the social media effort in my office and partner with the other people doing social media at Johnson Space Center. I was given an achievement award from the ISS Program for doing this and, as a result, my management actually added social media to part of my job responsibilities. This has put me in front of senior NASA management and helped build my reputation as someone who both gets the job done and supports our outreach mission from Congress.
