Use Twitter to Spot ISS station

Long time coz its exam time for me. Well this article i read in the newspaper today and found it interesting and i am sharing it her..

Two journalists have built an online service that would let twitter users around the world to spot the Internatinal Space Station(ISS), without a telescope.

People using twitter can receive an alert on their twitter profile when the ISS passes the location mentioned in their twitter profile.
All you have to do is follow the twitter account

The service is operating in a testing phase now. Website accompaning the twitter messages will be launched in a week. As a very bright spot ISS crosses the sky in about three minutes.

Twisst may even be the first service on twitter to send out such a highly personalised information. It sends messages to every follower separately
