MarsPhoenix on Twitter

I am a total space nerd.   So one might imagine my glee when I discovered that the Phoenix Mars Lander has it’s own Twitter page.  And that some creative type at NASA is writing the posts as if the actual lander is doing the posting.  (I picture it having a voice similar to that of Rudolph in Rankin/Bass’ classic Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer.)  Unfortunately, Twitter is having “issues” right now (aren’t we all?) and you won’t be able to access posts prior to the ones that appear on the front page.  But this is neat example of how Twitter might be used to document an event.
