I think if people did post #name of park (all run together of course), and what they saw, that might be cool. Others in that same area could search for hashtags and see if anyone had put anything out there.
This might not be right for rare bird alerts, but for sharing info in general...giving people something to look for on a specific day or place. It might also be fun for non-birders who are in the area that might come across the tweet and get a bit of interest in birding.
The trick is to get the location names exact or workable, for instance I just searched twitter for milllakepark (it took me a couple of tries to come up with the Abbotsford park) and sure enough an Abbotsford News reporter had tweeted a picture of the eagles nest there on Feb. 23.
I think it has possibilities, if not for serious birders, but certainly for others and for beginners. Thanks for bringing it up! It is kind of funny that the twitter symbol is a bird, lol. Tweet tweet
