NASA Tweetups (re-branded NASA Socials in 2012) are events hosted by NASA to promote the agency's missions through social media. Elmo attended the NASA Tweetup on July 7-8, 2011 for what would be the final launch of Space Shuttle Atlantis.

Elmo appeared at Cape Canaveral, Florida speaking with astronauts Leland Melvin, Mike Massimino and Douglas H. Wheelock for a press event, and tweeted updates on the Sesame Street Twitter account.

Upon Atlantis’s return, Elmo welcomed the crew of STS-135 to the "What's Your Favorite Space?" event at the Eventi Hotel in New York City on August 17th. The hotel's "Big Screen Plaza" housed a miniature space outpost with an inflatable Mars Rover, and various activities hosted by Elmo and mission commander Chris Ferguson.[1]
