“Twisit Jordan” Courtesy of Queen Rania — Learn Social Media By Example

Tweet + Visit = Twisit… Simple and fun isn’t it? Read more to find out what this is all about!

Idea & Objectives:

Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah kicked off “Twisit Jordan” on Twitvid around 2 weeks ago.

“Twisit Jordan” is a two fold campaign. Queen Rania has called out for people around the world to submit videos stating what they would like to experience in Jordan, while on the other end she called on Jordanians to submit videos that show how special Jordan is.

Twisit Jordan

Ultimately, a Tourist Swap will happen where two foreigners get to enjoy a tour around Jordan for a week and two Jordanians get to enjoy a tour around the country of the winners.
