The travel industry and Twitter, part 3

December 18, 2008

[Note: This list will now be kept here on a permanent basis]

A quick update then on the wealth of travel industry Twitterers out there. Well over two months ago, I asked: Why aren’t UK travel companies using Twitter?

Since that original post, and a further one (here) I’ve stumbled upon a whole new world of ‘Twitter meets travel’, and have even been contacted by some travel firms. So I stand corrected.

This latest list is still mostly American, but there are a few more UK-based firms on it.

It’s interesting to note how many American tourist boards have started using Twitter; they all cleverly post back to their official websites.

Travel booking websites are also getting in on the act.

The travel industry is a fun industry, and Twitter lends itself perfectly to the environment.

It’s a great marketing tool, and with the 140 characters restriction, you can easily scan the headlines to pick out what you need.

Here’s the new list then, but for a less corporate list, take a look at Elliott’s blog.

And please get in touch if I’ve missed you out – leave a comment at the end of this post, or send me message here.

    Hi, Great post on the travel industry’s use of Twitter and social media for that matter! I noticed that you do not have Pennsylvania on your list. You can find PA on Twitter @PAadventure and we also engage on Facebook, Flickr, Youtube and maintain a successful travel blog all about the state of PA

    Check them out when you get a chance! And thanks again for the great info! I’m going to retweet your link to PA’s followers!
