    The Twitter feed for Curosity was done exclusively by women.

    One of the things that makes these pages so engaging and popular is that they’re written in the first person. Curiosity, it turns out, has quite the brassy personality. She litters her twitter feed with pop culture references, tweetspeak, and a bold attitude.

    Behind that brassy personality are three women working at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory: Veronica McGregor, Social Media Manager; Stephanie L. Smith and Courtney O’Connor, both Social Media Specialists. I had a chance to talk with the entire team on the phone today about their challenges and successes in being the voice of the largest spacecraft ever to touch the surface of another world.
