Vodafone #UKhols Travel Map


Vodafone has launched an interesting Twitter and Google Maps mash-up where U.K. residents can plot their vacation destination on the map by tweeting the hashtag #ukhols with their age, sex, postcode and summer vacation destination. The tie in to Vodafone is that it is promoting their decision to cancel roaming charges for select countries this summer. Top destinations are tallied in the right hand column which is also interesting to watch travel trends abroad and see how the global recession is effecting their travel plans. This is one of the first interesting uses of the ability to geo code Tweets and think we will see more of this in the near future.
