While giveaways and “follow us and win!” contests aren’t always worth calling out, this promotion from[URL="http://twitter.com/#!/nasa"]@NASA[/URL] is too great to pass up. They’re planning on inviting 150 of their followers to [URL="http://www.nasa.gov/connect/tweetup/tweetup_curiosity_11-23and25-2011.html"]watch the Curiosity Mars Rover launch[/URL]. Yes, the actual launch, from Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

That is what [URL="http://techcrunch.com/2011/09/28/nasa-to-invite-150-of-its-twitter-followers-to-mars-rover-launch/"]TechCrunch[/URL] wrote about the latest in NASA's long list of social media exploits.
Ranging from astronauts tweeting from space to live streaming video of launches. It is refreshing to see a government organization getting so involved into technology and social media. Rightfully so, it is NASA, after all!

The two-day Tweetup will provide NASA's social media followers with the opportunity to tour Kennedy Space Center; speak with scientists and engineers; and, if all goes as scheduled, view the spacecraft launch. The event also will provide participants the opportunity to meet fellow tweeps and members of NASA's social media team.

Are you game? Follow [URL="http://twitter.com/#!/nasa"]@NASA[/URL] for your chance to be selected for the Tweetup
