It’s all in the name: JetBlueCheeps. That’s the moniker given to JetBlue’s new account on Twitter, which the carrier will use to broadcast last-minute deals to the Twittersphere (man, seems we’re just making up new words every day, doesn’t it?). In its first day of tweeting deals, JetBlue offered some tantalizing fares, including $9 from Boston to New York, and $19 from New York to Chicago. All the flights tweeted were one-way for travel this weekend.
So here’s a question: Should you be on Twitter? With JetBlue and United tweeting fares and travel writers such as Rick Seaney and Wendy Perrin passing along deals, Twitter is quickly becoming a source for savings. Of course, we’re on Twitter too, but you probably already knew that.
Do you think Twitter is the Next Big Thing for travel deals, or is this just a fad that will blow over? Leave a comment below with your thoughts. And if you’re already using Twitter to find travel deals and advice, feel free to share your experiences so far.
