This is a short story that shows how mentioning influential Twitter accounts in your tweets can help spread your marketing messages more widely.
On Sunday, as my Qantas flight was making its final approach to Darwin, a woman became distressed and fainted.
A man, who I have seen on the Adelaide-Darwin flight before, left his seat and provided some treatment.
The Qantas steward barked into the PA system, ‘ALL passengers must be seated.’
He eventually did, just before the plane dropped from the air for the landing.
We were asked to stay in our seats while extra medical help was provided to the passenger who was escorted out of the plane first.
While we were waiting, I sent this tweet:
Bravo to the doctor on board flight from #Adelaide to #DarwinNT – a poor lady has fainted on landing. Great human spirit @TheNTNews
Interestingly, the woman was treated just a few metres from the plane’s exit door and the hundred or so passengers all filed past here. An odd experience. It felt like we were all walking past her hospital bed.
What happened next, is what prompted today’s blog.
