NASA Plans Earth Day Tweetup on the National Mall in Washington

NASA will host its first Earth Day Tweetup on the National Mall in Washington with @NASA Twitter followers and NASA scientists on April 18 at 1 p.m. EDT.

The event will be part of a weeklong series of exhibits and activities on the National Mall marking the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. The Tweetup will provide NASA Twitter followers with the opportunity to talk with NASA Earth and climate scientists, producers of NASA's Earth imagery and the staff behind the agency's tweets.

Registration opens at noon on Monday, April 5, and closes at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, April 6. NASA will randomly select 100 individuals from a pool of online registrants. Additional registrants will be added to a waiting list.
