Greetings AMSAT!

A few weeks ago, I emailed out asking for help on figuring out how to
tweet from our CAPE-2 cubesat while it is in orbit using APRS. I am
pleased to announce, the satellite is now capable of tweeting.

I realize our launch is still a little ways away, but I thought I
would pass the community our twitter account to follow. Expect
occasional tweets from the account as we test different modules out.

Thanks to everyone who helped our team brainstorm how to make this a reality!
