Want a fun way to learn and share travel tips? How about learn of travel deals? Better yet, have a chance to win great prizes! How? Travel Twitter chats!
Chats on Twitter are a fun way to feel connected with fellow travelers, share advice and stories about travel, hear about some great deals, and maybe be the recipient of a twitter chat prize. The odds of winning the offered prize during a twitter chat are very good as the number of participants is usually less than 100 and many times much less.
How do you “chat” on Twitter? Assuming you have a Twitter account (if not, get a free account!), simply search on a twitter hashtag listed below based on the day and time the chat is scheduled. Search for the hashtag (#travelskills, for example) and watch the conversation on your screen. Post your responses to any of the questions appearing in the chat, or ask a question of your own (in the case of #TT / #TravelTuesday) especially. Or simply watch and learn. Though with the prizes offered in several of the chats listed here, you’ll want to submit an answer or two to be in the running for the prize.
Here are travel-related Twitter chats to participate in:
2:00pm EST – #cruisechat
4:00pm EST – #luxchat. Chat about luxury and fashion
12:00pm EST – #travelskills hosted by Chris McGinnis and Johnny Jet. Great travel tips and fun conversation, often attended by amazing travel pros tweeting in from around the globe. http://travelskills.com/chat/
These are just a few of the Twitter chats that are travel-related. If you have a favorite, list it below.
