Follow Me on Twitter! (Shameless Plug to Help Me Hit 5,000 Followers)

At the time of writing this post, I’m about 70 followers away from 5,000, so if you haven’t done so, please follow me! If you don’t have a Twitter account, get one here.

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).
