Before I started this project, I already had multiple blogs which rest on the web cemetery. But all that time, there was one thing I never really understood: Twitter. Whats the idea behind just posting 140 letters? Btw, you might get an idea that I also prefer to call people instead of using short message service. Just recently I decided to give it a try. What I misunderstood was this: It more versatile and flexible than RSS feeds or signing up for a newsletter. Because you don't have to give away any email address of yours and do not get bombed with advertisement. And it is easier to republish content YOU like - can't do that with RSS feeds. Furthermore it does not need a lot of bandwith, so it works well with mobile devices or if you are on a ship which does not provide that much bandwith.

The following cruise lines are twittering:

Most european airports have a twitter account as well, but to keep this list of links short, I recommend Eurocontrol: @eurocontrol .
