Twitter yourself a great travel deal

Last week I touched upon how travel tweeting — by both the travelers themselves and the companies that get them on their way — has taken off in a big way.
A few weeks ago I commented on a story in USA Today about how travelers can use Twitter to snag some fast-moving travel deals. The article was fantastic, but in my comment, which has made it’s way to the top of the comment stack :) , I let readers in on some tips to further leverage Twitter to find those travel deals easier than ever before, such as hashtags, searches, and Twitter platforms. Have a look to find out more.
And if you’re on Twitter, be sure to follow us @FriendlyPlanet for the latest Friendly Planet Travel news and a peek behind the curtain at the Friendly Planet Travel office, as well as tips, tricks, and deals for traveling the world.
