As someone who has been using Twitter obsessively to connect with other travelers and people who share interests in making the world a better place, I have trouble keeping a track of all the hashtags and weekly chats relating to travels and “saving the world.”  So, I thought I should make a list that would be beneficial for me and others.

For example, one week, DoubleTree by Hilton sponsored the chat and gave away two free night hotel stays to one lucky winner and free signature cookie tin of DoubleTree by Hilton chocolate chip cookies to ten lucky winners.  I was certainly one of the lucky winners to win the cookies!
