Say what you will, but Twitter is a literary art form. I love the challenge of crafting something informative and entertaining in 140 characters or less. Sadly, I haven’t done that lately and my tweets have been purely informative and a bit boring.

While conversing with NASA Tweetup folks yesterday about something totally different @ageekmom replied with an intriguing tweet.

She said:

“Let’s just say you will VERY QUICKLY run out of positive superlatives while attending #NASATweetup!”

Inspiration to Improve my Vocabulary for NASA Tweetup

Hmm. She’s participated in a NASA Tweetup before so she knows the ropes. I’ve decided to take this on as a challenge: to expand my vocabulary for the NASA Tweetup I’ll soon be attending. (For space shuttle Endeavour’s final launch, Tweetup is April 28 – 29, 2011.) Not necessarily with superlatives but by incorporating colorful adjectives to articulate the awesomeness of what I’m experiencing in an entertaining, yet informative way. And, in 140 characters or less.

I have begun compiling a list of potential adjectives for my tweets so I don’t seem repetitive in what I’m sharing with followers. Feel free to share your favorite adjectives I should have in my NASA Tweetup dictionary. Oh, and keep it “G” rated.

  1. [From Twitter] – I adore it! There are a few to add: life-affirming, humbling, stellar. PS: You’ll still run out! 😉

    There will also be moments when you are left, completely and utterly, without words. It’s a surreal feeling to have, given you’re at one of the few events in life — a tweetup — where constant tweeting is not only accepted, it’s encouraged!

    I wish you, and all of the STS-134 NASA Tweetup “crew”, a most amazing time in Florida! Go Endeavour!
