Twitter community and our 150,000 followers. Originally created to provide U.S. citizens with country specific information, today, @TravelGov is the U.S. Government's authoritative tweet on international travel information.

• We tweet travel alerts, travel warnings, and important messages from our embassies and consulates.
• In crisis situations, we tweet vital emergency information, such as evacuation plans and U.S. embassy contact information.
• During natural disasters that affect air transportation, we tweet the status of affected airports and link to the airport's websites so followers can receive up-to-date information.

@TravelGov has advanced our vision to help U.S. citizens engage the world as smart travelers. Over the past three years, we've grown, listened, engaged with our community and continue to explore new opportunities to connect with our tech savvy citizens.

Our latest innovation is the @Twitter.
