Official Hashtag: #NASASocial4yrs & About the Agenda
Official hashtag for this virtual tweetup celebrating the 4 year anniversary of the first NASA Tweetup (January 21, 2009 at
What follows is a loose agenda. You can either follow it as Eastern Time, use it to guide your tweeting in your local time zone, or merely use the different topics as idea prompts and tweet whenever you are able.
- Note: in the agenda, NASASocial, NASATweetup, Social, Tweetup, etc. are kind of used interchangeably. We all know it means the same thing unless explicitly stated :-)
- Other Note: RogueTweetups can/should be included where appropriate as it's a legacy of the NASATweetups as well.
