Please fasten your seatbelts, it’s Hammer Time!
I knew there was a reason for discovering MC Hammer on Twitter (I expressed my joy last night).
Now before you say : “Not another blog on Twitter!” this does have some relevance to travel, as we’re going to follow Hammer as he prepares for his Virgin America flight…
It still pays to be a celebrity. I’m assuming by this tweet he got an upgrade.
The journey. He’s eager to get there, but I’m not sure about the 1950 reference.
Boarding. A few concerns raised here.
This one is more self explanatory.
Now this is unfortunately where we leave the story. At time of writing he’s still in the air, and tweeted once – but nothing related to flight.
Now – I’m sure airlines are missing a trick here. They’re probably the most advanced, in the travel industry, when it comes to Twitter. Look at JetBlue for example, with its 55,153 followers.
The Hammer himself is a popular man (83,875 followers), so surely some kind of airline/celebrity tie-up would work wonders, and be a bit of fun.
Hammer also makes a surprise appearance on a recent blog post by BBC journalist Dave Lee.
He takes what is in fact a serious look at Twitter here: Not convinced? 10 things to change your mind about Twitter and manages to crowbar MC Hammer into number 10 – it’s a good read.
