Kepler launch is coming soon, and I'm Twittering

I'm watching the NASA TV feed of the Kepler launch on my computer rather than my television because there's a more important claim on my television at this precise moment (namely, that my daughter cannot get through dinner without her Wow Wow Wubbzy). So far, things look good! You can of course follow along on the Web, or you can try following my Twitter feed.

Yes, I have a Twitter feed, and no, I haven't really used it before. This is an experiment to see if it's any easier for me to use for fast-changing events than updating this blog. The latest few posts (I guess, "tweets") are shown below; you can refresh this page to update those posts, or just go to the Twitter site to read.

Event's over and launch was successful, thanks for reading!

I'm very much open to feedback on how well this works, and what I can do to make it better. If this experiment succeeds I plan to use it for other fast-changing events in the future.
