I didn't know where else to put this but I've started a little project using Twitter.

Basically I've created a story being told from the point of view of a young astronaut Pierce O'Riley. He is supposedly on a new type of light weight space shuttle "Helenae 1" just outside of Earth's orbit at the moment. The shuttle will be sucked through a blackhole at some point and will land on a very strange feral alien planet. I don't want to give too much away but Pierce will find out some very disturbing information about Earth's origins.

Cliche? Maybe, but it'll be something better to follow than a lot of the garbage that is on Twitter.

If you have Twitter and would like to watch this story unfold in real time please follow Pierce O'Riley @Astronautopia

Thanks.

interesting concept.....Atleast like the OP said it is better than most of the ramblings on twitter.
Tho at first I was under the impression astronauts in the space station were using twitter..Which kinda of would of suprised me...
Perhaps everyone on ATS should get a twitter account and twitter the important topics and issues that are relevant to here...Maybe wake some people up
Though I imagine waking somebody up with 160 characters or less may propose a challenge
intrested to see where you take this tho

New NASA Twitter Feed Live from the ISS! ...Astronauts aboard the International Space Station received a special software upgrade this week – personal access to the Internet and the World Wide Web via the ultimate wireless connection. Expedition 22 Flight Engineer T.J. Creamer made first use of the new system Friday, when he posted the first unassisted update to his Twitter account, @Astro_TJ, from the space station. Previous tweets from space had to be e-mailed to the ground where support personnel posted them to the astronaut's Twitter account.

i like the concept you have going of an astronaut twittering about the goings on of their mission. it can be very interesting given how twitter limits each posting to 160 characters.

someone else has something similar, only they are inviting the public to add to the story. it was started by Neil Gaiman, creator and author of "the sandman" comic series.

here's the link to the article: mashable.com...

this is an interesting use of twitter and an entertaining one as well

please keep it up
