Twitter, a micro blogging website, is one of the most successful venture in recent times. Just few days back Twitter crossed 20 Billion Tweets count. People have integrated Twitter service with their life and living a virtual world with it. However constant popularity growth of Twitter made people to adopt its services in many more ways. Thinking on the same thought way, a British man called Paul Smith has traveled around the world almost totally free using only Twitter to get journeys from fellow users.

With all his excitement, Mr. Smith’s decision got moral support from his wife who asked to put his plan on calendar as well Twitter. Sensing no harm, Smith has posted all this travel plan 28 days ahead of traveling on his Twitter account. Initial few days went with no action towards his tweet which turned around when Stephen Fry came across to his Twitter and pushed in his own network with detail plan suggestions and needs.

As mentioned in telegraph.co.uk, Stephen tweeted this in such a way that complete plan expenses got distributed in multiple actionable items can’t be owned by multiple people. He wrote this as :

– Ferry ticket from Newcastle to Amsterdam (tweeter called Leanne)

– Train to Paris (two French tweeters)

– Free bed at a hostel

– Train to Saarbrucken

– Lift in car to Frankfurt (German tweeter Andrea Juchem)

– One-way flight from Frankfurt to New York (tweeter called Owen, using Air Miles)

– Spare bed in hotel room (tweeter from Yorkshire called Mark)

– Then travel to and stays in Washington DC, Chicago and San Francisco by plane, train and car (US tweeters)

– Flight to San Francisco (Zurich-based tweeter)

– Car to Los Angeles

– Free flight from LA to Auckland (Air New Zealand)

– Ferry to South Island

– Lift to tip of South Island (tweeter called Smiley)

– Sailed to Stewart Island.

By this point, Steve had all hopes alive which can take him to his intended destination which later got shattered but with the feel of achievement much more than expected. He realized he had achieved more than he could have hoped for – and proven how kind and spontaneous people could be to total strangers. He also managed to be interviewed for the Good Morning America television breakfast show and partied with actresses Liv Tyler, Eva Mendes and Jessica Alba in Hollywood.

“But my main aim was to get as far around the world as I could in 30 days. When I gazed across the sea towards Campbell Island I didn’t feel like a beaten man. “People were bending over backwards to help me and the trip proved to me there is a lot of good in the world.” He has written a book called Twitchhiker, which is out now.

People are getting fascinated with the idea of Twitter and Facebook easily. Instead focusing on quality network, volumes is on their priority list. Above Case Study stands a real example of the acceptance and impact of social networking these days. No matter where you live, what you do and ho many people know you personally, if you carry a good virtual online identity, you can accomplish anything anytime. Help is required and helpers are there in a numbers. Social networking is no more just a chatting and personal information sharing media. Above the boundaries, its one of the most impactful resource if utilized in a proper way. It’s all depends how you understand, take and utilize its form its core strength.
