On June 19, at 5:00pm ET, we will be participating in a Myrtle Beach Twitter chat. We’re co-hosting with Visit Myrtle Beach, and would love to have your participation.

This Twitter chat is especially timely for a couple reasons. First, we recently launched twice weekly service to Myrtle Beach and are looking forward to a busy summer. Second, WestJet and Visit Myrtle Beach were both recipients of SMITTY (Social Media in Travel and Tourism) Awards recently.

WestJet received the award for best video for our 2012 Christmas Flash mob. Our friends at Visit Myrtle Beach were selected as the best Convention and Visitor Bureau in the U.S for their fall campaign. So it’s only fitting that we should team-up to talk about all the great things to do in and around Myrtle Beach.

If you’ve never participated in a Twitter chat before, it’s very simple. Every 10 minutes, starting at 5pm ET, the hosts will Tweet one question. You reply (or RT) with your answer, including the #WestJetMYR hashtag.

There will be a total of 6 questions that cover a variety of aspects of travel to Myrtle Beach, so get ready to share your own knowledge and photos and learn something new at the same time. Remember, there are no wrong answers so have fun with it.

Be sure to follow @WestJet and @MyMyrtleBeach on Twitter and follow along via the #WestJetMYR hashtag, starting at 5pm ET on Wednesday, June 19.
