@twitchhiker .. 3 DAYS TO GO

Paul Smith set for 30-day charity mission

By @makingthenews

@twitchhiker will set off 30-day charity mission on Sunday — to see how far he will get with the twitter community as his only aid.
The freelance journalist from Newcastle — real name Paul Smith — is attempting to travel the world in just one month relying entirely on twitter users.
And it’s all for charity, with proceeds going to the same charity supported by Twestival, Charity: Water.
In an exclusive ‘twinterview’ with @journalism_live @twitchhiker revealed: “In terms of travelling, nothing’s organised. One of the rules is I can’t plan my route more than three days ahead.”
Other rules include only being able to accept travel and accommodation on twitter and only from twitter users.
If Paul is unable to move on from a location within 48 hours, the challenge is over and he will go home.
He added: “I’ll report back with a mix of blogs, videos images and of course tweets. It’s important we’re all in this together and prove twitter can make a difference. Charity: water is a brilliant charity and I hope to do my bit.”
