Love Twitter? Try Portland’s new ‘Twisitor Center’

PORTLAND, Ore. – Portland has become the first city in America to try putting its visitor center on Twitter.

Twitter is a social networking Web site where people post very short messages.  Many people know all about Twitter but if you’re new to the idea, here’s a video that explains it all.

In what Portland is calling its Twisitor Center on Twitter, visitors can ask quick travel questions about the city – questions like:

  • Where’s a good place to have lunch downtown?
  • What’s a good show to see?

To post a question, just make sure to add the identifier #inpdx at the end of your tweet.  Examples:

  • “What’s the best way to get from the airport to downtown? #inpdx”
  • “Looking for a sandwich shop with free Wi-Fi, any suggestions? #inpdx”

Not only does the Travel Portland Visitor Information Bureau offer an expert’s suggestion, because it is on Twitter, anyone can help – locals helping visitors.
