Twitter is a handy tool for keeping up with PAX lines, announcements, friends and giveaways. Although connections are often spotty in the WSCC (and to a lesser extent the BCEC), Twitter is a pretty easy media to access, and one can even have feeds sent as texts to your cell phone to avoid data charges and get prompt updates.
