Twitter Hashtags Helps Those Who Are Stranded Because Of The Iceland Volcano

Posted Apr 21, 2010

Several hashtags have been extremely useful for those who have been stranded across several parts in the world because of the Iceland volcano. This could have been useful for a friend of mine that was planning to go to Paris, but his flight was cancelled.

Many people have been using the hashtags #ashtag, #getmehome, #putmeup, and #stranded on Twitter to make it easier to find accommodations and update people on airports that are open. The Eyjafjallajokull glacier in southern Iceland erupted within the last couple of weeks and ash emissions have reduced since then.
