Flight engineer T.J. Creamer, of NASA Expedition 22 aboard the International Space Station, posted a tweet at approximately 3:38 a.m. EST Friday. It was the first ever to be posted directly to Twitter from somewhere other than planet Earth.

“Hello Twitterverse!,” wrote Creamer, under the Twitter user name Astro_TJ. “We r now LIVE tweeting from the International Space Station—the 1st live tweet from Space! ,” Creamer said.

“More soon, send your ?s,” added Creamer, who had more than 5,000 followers as of Friday afternoon.

NASA astronauts have posted updates on Twitter in the past, but they first had to be relayed to Mission Control. Now, residents of the ISS can post directly to the micro-blogging site thanks to a new, direct Internet connection.

Dubbed the Crew Support LAN, the system relies on existing communication links to give astronauts full Web connectivity. The crew also has access to e-mail, VoIP, and videoconferencing tools.
