The Heads of State

How is the new digital landscape changing the way we travel? To find out, T+L dispatched social-media expert Amy Chen on a getaway to tech-savvy Portland. Here are her social media tips for travel.

Turn Down the Volume

The din on social media can reach a roar if you don’t take control of it. Creating lists on Twitter will help you sort through the noise and keep up-to-date on a destination. After following someone on Twitter, click the “person” icon and choose “add or remove from list.” By following the tweets on my Portland list, I spotted the news (via @eaterpdx) that Pine State Biscuits, which a Facebook friend had recommended, had closed one of its locations. Given that the closure hadn’t yet been updated on Yelp, I was grateful I hadn’t wasted precious time with an unnecessary detour.

Cheat Sheet: Create a list for your trip by following local restaurants, hotels, tourism boards, and chambers of commerce, newspapers and magazines, and travel and food bloggers.
