The OPN blog now has a presence on Twitter.com. If you have an account on that two-year-old social-networking site, please set it up to “follow” OPNBlog and you’ll get a notice whenever we make a blog post to OPN’s home page.
Twitter is also called a “microblogging” service because it limits posts to 140 characters each. However, there is no limit on creative ways to use the technology. For example, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory set up a Twitter feed for the Mars Phoenix Lander to “tweet” to its followers as it landed on the Red Planet and began its mission.
Please let us know what you think of this outreach effort. We hope it will make it easier for you to keep up to date with OPN’s Web site.
