At BlogWorld Expo, I finally got to meet two of Sheila Scarborough‘s travel connections, Doug at Authentic Seacoast (@AuthenticCoast) and Shannon Lane (@Cajun_Mama). We had a great discussion about what makes tourism tweets interesting.
Doug said a regional tourism group had an intern handling their Twitter account. He would tweet things like, “I’m going to have a sandwich.” If only it had been a local specialty, like a lobster sandwich, Doug said.
From a great local cafe, I added.
With a picture, Shannon finished.
You make your tourism Twitter stream more interesting by including the details and connections that make your place come to life.

Can I just say how insanely jealous I am that you meant @AuthenticSeacoast in person!? Very cool.
(Oh – and great advice too.)
