    I still don’t quite get twitter, but this is amusing…

    The Phoenix Lander has a twitter feed written in the first person. It would be so much more interesting if the messages were actually being sent from the lander itself, rather than some NASA geek in mission control, but I’ll try to suspend my disbelief for a little while.

    Mission leaders are meeting with press right now.. very happy.. and taking all the credit :-) of a fantastic landing 9 minutes ago from web
