Welcome to Twitter, Air India @airindiain

A warm welcome on Twitter to national carrier Air India. Despite the multiple accounts sounding like the airline, its official Twitter account is @airindiain.

The carrier joins its private competitors like Jet Airways (@jetairways) SpiceJet (@flyspicejet), IndiGo (@IndiGo6E), and GoAir (@goairlinesindia) on Twitter.

Though the account was officially opened in 2011, it seems to have become active only earlier this year. The account initially appeared to be used primarily as a advertising platform and it is nice to see Air India followed the lead of its competitors using its Twitter account to address customer concerns.

Tweet your welcome to the airline.
