New Marketing Opportunity from the Commission on Culture & Tourism
Join “Visit Connecticut” on Twitter!


HARTFORD (October 19, 2010) - A new Twitter page aimed at promoting culture and tourism events, attractions, accommodations and specials throughout Connecticut and increasing awareness of the many opportunities available to residents and visitors was recently launched by the Commission on Culture & Tourism. The “CTvisit” Twitter page posts exciting updates relevant to tourism statewide and invites visitors to discuss favorite attractions and activities, share ideas with their own followers (retweeting), and learn about various events, deals, sites and properties.


An incredibly popular social networking site, Twitter is a key resource for travel information, ideas for entertainment and leisure time activities and vacation planning, allowing users to engage in real time conversations, resource gathering and sharing.  Twitter boasts more than 100 million users.  “CTvisit” on Twitter will be the premier Twitter page for Connecticut tourism information and combines with the existing “Visit Connecticut” Facebook page to create a growing and successful social media portfolio.


You are invited to partner with CCT in this new marketing opportunity by linking your Twitter page with “CTvisit,” engaging in tourism-related interactions, retweeting its postings and suggesting the page to your followers.
