The #FollowFriday Series highlights today’s up-and-coming, active and all-around noteworthy Twitter accounts the AudioAcrobat staff deems worthy of following; while at the same time peering deeper into the soul(-cial media) of each account and providing a brief-yet-informative analysis.
After making hundreds of #FollowFriday recommendations on Twitter throughout the first sixteen weeks of 2011, our team is showing no sign of letting up when it comes to the merger of AudioAcrobat’s weekly #FF tweets into this nifty WordPress.com weblog.
Last week’s feature focused on the device which has the most 5-star reviews of any product on Amazon – Kindle – and was so well received by our readers that we’d be mad to not continue this weekly trend of blog-integrated, fun and factual tweets.
Now to connect with the executive branch agency of the US government whose mission is to ‘pioneer the future in space exploration, scientific discovery and aeronautics research’!
In today’s posting, we will not only share this week’s featured #FollowFriday account, @NASA, but will also take our readers in for a closer look at twenty five of the one hundred twenty two Twitter accounts @NASA is currently following … a mirror, if you will, into the soul(-cial media) of the US government executive branch agency who put man on the moon in the summer of ‘69.
Yep. That’s right, we just said it … “soulcial media”. We also said “the US government executive branch agency who put man on the moon in the summer of ‘69” in the same sentence.

@NASA: News from NASA
#FRR – ET foam released on STS-133 was consistent with a known process and occurred after the critical debris time, as expected. No concern.

More about NASA:
NASA’s vision: To reach for new heights and reveal the unknown so that what we do and learn will benefit all humankind.
To do that, thousands of people have been working around the world — and off of it — for 50 years, trying to answer some basic questions. What’s out there in space? How do we get there? What will we find? What can we learn there, or learn just by trying to get there, that will make life better here on Earth?
