I got totally fired up to completely dump on Twitter as an astronomy tool, but that's actually pretty cool. Possibly the most useful Twitter feed I've seen.

Wow. I just spent a lot of time last week trying to figure out how to get satellites into Stellarium. This is basically the next best thing.
Did I saw wow yet?

Yeah, no kidding. Based solely on my personal and totally unfair prejudices against Twitter, I was expecting something much less informative.

"Stars are pretty neat, you can see them tonight if you want. If you're outside I mean."

"Jupiter's made out of gas? WTF??"

"Huh. Shooting stars aren't actually stars, apparently. Who's naming these things???"
