Acacia plans Madagascar “tweet-up” on Twitter
So I was interested in a press release (forwarded to me by colleague @philippajacks) from operator Acacia Adventure Holidays, combining the world’s fourth largest island and social media.
The press release states: “Acacia Adventure Holidays Launches Madagascar “Tweet Up” This Friday 21 August… The tweet up will run from 10am to midday (BST). Questions can be forwarded to email@example.com in advance or highlighted on the twitter page on Friday 21 August.”
Apart from a technical question – is this really a “tweet-up”? – it’s a nice idea, and uses social media to good effect, both promoting a destination in its own right and offering agent training.
Acacia Adventure Holidays also promotes a blog on their homepage, as well as their Twitter page (pictured below).
Looks like blogging is a growing trend over there too, according to the BBC.
Oh, and talking of tweet-ups, there’s going to be another on Thursday 27th. More details to follow, but as usual it’s a free for all, a great opportunity to network, share ideas, make new contacts, discuss campaigns, techniques, and allows people to put faces to the online personas we use, etc etc
