    Thanks a million for the list. Helps a lot!!!

    Here are some very biased suggestions…

    Tourisme Montréal, where I work as PR and research manager, has launched a 100% web only marketing campaign for leisure in North America for 2009. Part of this campaign, we hired through our agency 5 Montréal ‘insiders’. See press release of the campaign: http://smr.newswire.ca/en/tourisme-montreal/tourisme-montreal-shifting-to-100-web-based-advertising

    Here are the details of the 5 insiders for Tourisme Montréal, in case you want to follow them…

    Aloha Cindy: I myself will look at Free in the 50 States for my client, the Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau.

    Aloha VSPC: You’ve been added. Mahalo!

    Aloha Colleen: Mahalo for your input. I’ve added you to the list. Thank you!

  19. Hi Nathan!
    Thanks for the listing – good information!

    VisitPittsburgh on twitter is actually twitter.com/vstpgh if you could correct on your list – thanks!

  20. VSPC says:

    Thanks for your efforts in compiling this. Please add Visit St. Pete/Clearwater to your list. You can follow us at http://www.twitter.com/VSPC.

  21. Great resource, Nathan. Thanks for compiling it. TravelingMom.com is following all of these and will keep checking back for more. You can follow us @travelingmoms. The Tweets come from our amazing network of traveling mom bloggers.
    And, I hope you and all of these CVBs will take a look at our feature “Free in the 50 States” at http://travelingmom.com/table/free/. If your town isn’t there yet, please send your list of ten attractions and/or events, a short description of each, a link for more info and a photo or two to: editor@travelingmom.com. For a good example of what we’re looking for, check out the listing from Washington DC http://travelingmom.com/district-of-columbia-/12-free-and-family-friendly-things-to-do-in-washington-d.c.html
    Thanks.

  22. There are several of us that Tweet on behalf of Missouri, we are MoTravelMama and MoTraveLynn. We will be adding more as we fill staff positions.

  24. Natasha says:

    The Greater Miami CVB is listed under MiamiandBeaches in Twitter. Please add us to your list!

  25. Nathan says:

    Aloha Jim. Portland CVB came up with the term “Twisitor Center.” I agree that was pretty clever. Here’s a story about it in SFGate.com:

    http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2009/04/10/TRG416ROJH.DTL&feed=rss.travel

  26. Jim says:

    Thanks doing the legwork on this. Very helpful. And who came up with the term ‘twisitor’s center’. Very clever.

  27. Nathan! You must be an awesome typist. This is a beautiful contribution.

  28. Nathan says:

    @VisitKC, @visitcapefearnc, @insidesoma, @ExpCols have been added to the list. Mahalo!

  29. Alice Hohl says:

    @ExpCols

  30. Keri Hanson says:

    The Sonoma County Tourism Bureau is on Twitter – @insidesonoma.

  31. The Wilmington-Cape Fear Coast CVB has been on Twitter for about 2 months now: @visitcapefearnc. Thanks for adding us to the list! CN

  32. Nathan says:

    Hi Ronele. Thanks for the additions. All three have been added. Aloha!

  33. Nathan says:

    Aloha Peggy, I’ve been thoroughly impressed with what @TravelPortland has been doing and the Twisitor Center is really a great idea. The ultimate way to engage your visitors. I know if I’m ever in Portland, I’ll be using the service. Mahalo!

  34. Nathan says:

    Aloha Katherine: Thanks for the heads up on @coldinpdx’s awesome list. I’ve been connecting with him and will have to cross check my list later.

    Aloha Nancy: @GoToLouisville and @JustAddBurbon have been added. Mahalo!

    Aloha Neha: Got @pittsboroCVB covered on the list now. Thanks for stopping by.

    Aloha Doug: How could I forget @visitflorida. DOH! My pleasure to add.

  35. Peggy Bendel says:

    I note that someone has already listed Travel Portland (one of our clients, though we did not develop what I am about to describe!): I think you will ind their use of Twitter interesting.

    They are – we believe – the first CVB to have a “Twisitor Center” online: in other words, other Twitter users, rather than CVB staff, reply to posts about Portland, from their own perspective.

    This is a great list – and a great service!

    Well done,

    Peggy

  36. GoToLouisville (Louisville CVB)
    JustAddBourbon (An initative of the Louisville CVB)

  37. […] to Hawaii via Twitter Posted on April 5, 2009 by kruz808 After seeing Nathan Kam’s recent post of Visitor Bureaus on Twitter, I thought I’d follow up with a listing of Hawaii’s travel-related Twitter accounts.  […]

  38. Nathan says:

    Aloha Ian, Washington State Tourism added to the list!

  39. Ian Jeffries says:

    Don’t forget Washington State Tourism (@ExperienceWA) — we’d love to be on your list!

  40. travelvacations says:

    Nathan,

    Very thorough list. Great job!

  41. Nathan says:

    Aloha Katherine. Thanks for your suggestion to connect with @coldinpdx…I’m actually following him. And regarding the list of others you provided, they’ve been added to the list. 😉

  42. Great of you to put together the list, you might want to contact @coldinpdx; he posts a monthly list of top travel twitters and has a twistor center list; might save you a lot of trouble : )

    here’s the ones in my state i know of off the top of my head
    @travelcoosbay
    @travelsalem
    @travelportland
    @traveloregon
    @travellaneco
    @southernoregon

  43. Nathan says:

    Ken: Mahalo for the additional CVBs. I’ll add them later tonight.

    Nancy: Always appreciate your support. You are definitely a “must know” for Northern California info.

    Brad: That’s a great idea. I’ll see if we can get the Twitter community to help find the hashtags. Appreciate your help as well. Stay tuned. I’ll be calling on you. Aloha!

  44. Brad Crooks says:

    Nathan,
    I appreciate all your work on this project. Something else that would be useful (I’ll even help you with this) would be for each board and bureau to list the hashtags that they use.
    Thanks again
    Brad Crooks

  45. Hey Nathan,
    Thanks for sharing your list. I’m sure it will be growing rapidly as more CVB’s jump on the Twitter band wagon.

    Follow @Nancydbrown for all things travel related with a Northern California perspective.

  46. Great list but there are several ones that I see on Twitter that aren’t on the list:

    Destination DC (@destinationdc)
    Baltimore Area Visitor & Convention Association (@baltimoremd)
    Travel Portland (@travelportland)
