Shatner Tweets Astronaut; Internet Goes Crazy!
It was a normal day on Twitter until William Shatner did this:
@Cmdr_Hadfield Are you tweeting from space? MBB
@WilliamShatner Yes, Standard Orbit, Captain. And we’re detecting signs of life on the surface.
Greatest social media conversation *ever*
@leonblank aptly put it this way:
After these two tweets, Twitter is officially completed.
@clintonducus similarly noted:
The rest of us can stop now, the greatest Twitter conversation has been had
@SETIinstitute, which digs space chatting, said:
Living in the future. Star Trek captain William Shatner is sending messages to space and is getting a response from ISS
“@csa_asc: @williamshatner Until mid-May.” I can’t make any promises but I will see what I can do. MBB
I’m proud of being Canadian, but after yesterday’s twitter conversation am starting to question wearing this red shirt.
