Using Twitter for Hotels and Travel Tips

Micro-blogging/Social Networking website Twitter and its community seem to be ubiqutuous these days.Whether its President Obama or Lance Armtrong, Twitter seems to be making the headlines every day.

For any of you out there who have not came across it so far,  Twitter is a site that allows users to provide updates on their current activities via their mobile phone or computer. They can do this by either posting links or using plain text updates, as long as its done in under 140 characters.

Users can post updates on anything they like, and what is so powerful about Twiiter is that it enables you to connect with like-minded people - when you are in the community you can choose to 'follow' and recive updates from anyone of particular interest to you.

There are almost no topics which are not covered by the Twitter community. Of course, here at Hotels in the UK, we are most interested in Hotels and Travel Twitter - and there are plenty of options to choose from.
