Web Buzz: Making Twitter searches someone else's job

Posted: July 15, 2012

Name: TripTwit.com

What it does: Saves you time searching Twitter for travel deals that you might otherwise miss. Get airline, hotel and resort, cruise line and car rental deals sent straight to your inbox. Choose which destinations you want to see deals for, or search for travel brands you favor, such as Hawaiian Airlines, Kimpton hotels, and specialty cruise providers such as Lindblad Expeditions.

What's hot: The service allows for creating up to 20 alerts, and it will send you only one e-mail a day with deals from the previous 24 hours. Obviously, the more alerts you set, the more deals you'll see. If you want to check out the deals before you spend the time signing up, just go to the top of the home page and click on "Current Travel Deals." Cool.

What's not: Signing up for alerts takes too long. Instead of selecting one alert at a time, I'd like to opt-in to several brands at one time. .

Worth it: Are you addicted to deals and need to feed the beast?
