Sentinel Bloggers to Live Twitter From Universal PR Event

Later today, Universal Orlando is hosting a media junket to introduce the press to it’s new attraction, Disaster!, which is basically an updated version of their previous Earthquake! attraction. Among those covering the event will be the Orlando Sentinel‘s Theme Park Bloggers, who yesterday pledged on their blog that they intend to offer live Twitter updates as things occur.

For those not familiar with Twitter, it’s a website that allows you to post short updates on what’s happening in your life, whether it be links to something you found interesting or just what you had for supper. Posts are limited to 140 characters (letters, spaces, etc), so each Twitter needs to be short and to the point. The site is free to join and free to use. Once you become a member, you can sign up to follow other Twitter users as they post. It also allows posting via online or mobile sources like text messages.

It’s this mobile posting feature that will allow the Theme Park Bloggers to do their live Twitters from the park. I think it could be fun to follow them, and if you do too, simply visit twitter.com/ThemeParks and sign up to follow their feed. The event is supposed to start at 10:30am this morning, but if you miss the start, all posts will be archived for reading on their Twitter feed.
