It would be interesting to see how travel.se, its questions and its answers are discussed on twitter. Is there a hashtag we could use to tweet and monitor?
The official Twitter handle for Travel.SE is @StackTravel, which is a firehose of automatically tweeted links to new questions. It tags questions with 'leading' tag, which sounds like a useful standard for tagging.
We could use #TravelSE for now? It's short, and identifies that it's an abbreviation if we case it correctly. Only possible conflict is that there's an actual website out there called http://travel.se! ;) Haven't seen them tweeting though.
Does anybody know how to set up something on Twitter's competitors?
Google Plus has tweet-like things you can "follow".
I have some geek friends who are active on g+ and like to travel.
Facebook, trying to head Google off at the pass also added support for "following" things.
Most of us have a boatload of non geek friends here and I bet it's easier to get them to "follow" us than to sign up. After following us for a while I'm sure they are more likely to sign up.
Also Diaspora has now started up!
Anybody already know how these things work? Could you give the rest of us a bit of explanation?
Anybody interested enough to investigate how they work then give us the run down?
I know a high percentage of us are programmers as well as travellers and I for one should have plenty of hacking time over the next few months.
