Soundbite: NASA tweetups help space geek tweeters replace reporters

Posted on: August 13, 2011

For the final shuttle launch, “we had 130 Twitter users and only 60-some registered press.” While that might seem damaging for helping to spread the word of NASA, Schierholz believes it has actually fallen in line with this goal. One of the things NASA has faced as newspapers have shuttered is the loss of “space geek” reporters. These reporters are now being replaced by space geek Twitter users who help to spread the word, often times volunteering for interviews with their local news agencies as a “word from the street” perspective
