Arthur Frommer: Use Twitter to find ticket-price bargains

On several recent Tuesdays, JetBlue Airlines has published news of one-day sales over various routes that it flies in the U.S. Going in the morning to www.twitter.com/jetblue, on a Tuesday, you would find announcements of tickets for $19 on some of the airline's shorter itineraries. Later in the day, there would also be a flash announcement — valid for only a couple of hours — of transcontinental flights available for more than $19 but for far less than $99. The practice is not limited to JetBlue, and it's worth following the activities of other airlines on Twitter. Simply type www.twitter.com/ and then place the name of the airline (as a single word) following the slash line.
