If you are sick of hearing about Twitter and think it’s a stupid fad that’s going away, you should actually check out some of the benefits:
1) I usually respond to people pretty quickly when they Tweet me (including @thepointsguy in a Tweet). However, if you email me, sometimes it can take days (or more – sorry!) because I get a crazy amount of email. I get far fewer Tweets, so its a better way to capture my attention if you have a quick question
2) There are a ton of other interesting people on Twitter and it’s perfect for people with short attention spans (like me!)
3) It’s actually a great resource for frequent travelers. Since it’s a public forum, it’s a great way to get the attention of major travel companies. Delta is way far ahead of the pack and can actually rebook you via their @Deltaassist customer care team! I recently Tweeted with HyattConcierge while on a plane to see if they could contact a hotel to see if I could check in early (which they did and confirmed for me).
