U.S. Army Soldier-Astronaut and International Space Station (ISS) Expedition 22 Flight Engineer Timothy J. (T.J.) Creamer sent the first live tweet from space via the popular online social media site, Twitter, on Jan. 22, 2010. The tweet was made possible by recent technical enhancements made to accommodate direct private communications for ISS crew members to enhance their quality of life during long-duration missions by helping to ease the isolation associated with life in a closed environment.
