The Travel Industry on Twitter
Have just finished compiling a list of which travel companies use Twitter – have a look at it by clicking here.
I started a list before, on this very blog, but with the growing popularity of Twitter, and requests from people to have themselves included, it got out of hand. That was back in October last year, when I asked: Why aren’t UK travel companies using Twitter?
And during conversations in the office at Travel Trade Gazette, we thought it would be useful to have something like this, to see who’s doing what etc.
This sexy new spreadhseet is complied using Google Docs. I think it’s sexy (yes, I did just describe a spreadsheet as sexy) because this time anyone can input themselves (you’ll notice the link at the top of the list). And as it’s a Google Doc, it’s browser friendly, easy to view, can be split into different categories, and even exported.
So far, from the travel industry, it’s got:
- Travel Agents
- Tourist Boards
- PR/Digital Agencies
I’ll be adding a cruise lines section soon – any other sectors I should add please let me know…
As with everything I do with this blog, it’s an experiment. It’s also about collaboration, and from a travel industry perspective, I hope it will prove to be a useful resource.
Any feedback – positive or negative – please leave a comment at the end of this post. And if the list has any broken links, false accounts, or inaccuracies, please let me know and I will do my best to correct them.
The inspiration to try Google Docs came from Canadian “Media Junkie” Gabriel Nijmeh, who has set up a similar list for the music industry.
