Twitter Hashtags for working abroad

Twitter #Tags for Working Travellers

When Christine Gilbert needed to get from Cancun, Mexico to Quetzaltenango in Guatemala, she used Twitter. Within 20 minutes of her tweet she received advice from the owner of an obscure website that specialised in the route she needed to take.

Using Twitter as a tool to find gap years, jobs abroad or travel optionsChristine explains how Twitter has become an invaluable tool for travellers and expats in her ebook Twitter for Travellers*

Paul Smith (@twitchhiker) has also written a book about his travel experiences with Twitter. Unlike Christine, he purposely set out to use the social medium to get as far way as possible from the north east of England in 30 days. Relying on free offers of travel and accommodation he made it all the way to New Zealand.
