If you are a fan of Twitter and of travel, there’s now a fun event that happens every Thursday that makes it easy to meet other travelers around the world. It’s called Travelers’ Night In and it takes place on Twitter every Thursday from 3:30pm to 5pm EST. Each week a different host tweets out 10 questions on a topic related to travel. For example, today’s topic was about festivals. Then via the #TNI hashtag other twitterers reply with their answers. The resulting dialogue that occurs between Twitterers is fun to follow and I’ve gotten some travel ideas and information that’s helpful for planning future trips.
Participating is easy- just follow the #TNI tag. It’s also helpful to follow some users like @Gadling who tweet out the questions every week. The website Zip, Set, Go– who created the event- has more information about Travelers’ Night In and some useful tools like a TweetGrid that make it easier to follow the conversation.
If I’m able to be on Twitter during that time, I usually participate through my Twitter handle- @LizzyDragon84. Hope to see you there!
