Twitter serves as a great tool for companies trying to bridge the gap between their employees and potential customers; TweetAFlight is the perfect example of the social media's application for businesses. Using Chirpify and Paypal, TweetAFlight allows followers to buy airline tickets via Twitter. All a customer needs to do is register with TweetAFlight and then reply to specific tweets with the command 'buy,' if that is in fact what they are prepared to do. TweetAFlight passes it along to an airline ticket system where payment is immediately processed.
Founded by Steven Frischling of The Travel Strategist, TweetAFlight transforms real-time tweets into instant transactions for airlines and travel companies, effectively monetizing social media follower. TweetAFlight will be launched in a few months.
