Puerto Rico Tourism and agency JWT Puerto Rico, who've proved to be quick-on-their-feet with one disgruntled traveler, once again jumped on a newsworthy opportunity to create a smart social media move -- this time, in outer space. They recently responded to a tweet by astronaut Scott Kelly, who's orbiting Planet Earth as part of NASA's One-Year Mission.

Yesterday, Kelly tweeted a photo of Earth, just as he was flying over Puerto Rico, giving the island a shout-out. Immediately after seeing Kelly's tweet, Puerto Rico Tourism tweeted to him: "After a year in space, you deserve a stellar vacation. When you land, come to Puerto Rico, the All Star Island. Our treat."

We can't wait to see if he takes up the offer.
