Not a Twitter user yet? Well then here's what you're missing out on....

  5. @NASA - Newsfeed from NASA.
  6. @KeithCowing - Keith Cowing, the most feared voice in the space community. Love him or hate him, you have to read what he says.
  7. @mmealling - Michael Mealling, VP of Business Development at Masten Space Systems. Always has his finger on the pulse of the space industry and surrounding politics.

I see what you did there.... trying to force me to comment on all the people you left out. Very tricky, Mr. Fabio. Very tricky!

Can't complain too much about missing out on a slot in the top 10--my company in the honorable mentions is pretty darn good!

Paolo Amoroso said...

I have just received from Twitter 8 notifications of new followers, and now that I'm checking my RSS feeds I understand why. It's the first time I get so many new followers in a single day.

Flattered -- I has it.
