    What happened to the twitter "twares"? After they became mileage earning, they seemed like a really good deal for last minute. Have they disappeared? Anybody able to use them?

    There is a FT thead about them, perhaps we can ask UAInsider to comment on this.

    IslandSkies, a UA reservation's agent on FT, has said that TWARES will be returning.

    I would love to see them come back, there were a few good ones along the way like the occasional discounts to Australia.

    Curious why you wouldn't just subscribe to UA's twares so you would get the info ASAP?

    Willie, I am on t he Mileage Plus mailing list, an I get so much junk from them when all I want is bonus mile offers and good air fare deals. What is the tware email list and where do I sign up?

    united.com special deals section but I couldn't find a sign up link (or quite frankly any mention of twares). Be on the lookout, if UA brings them back, they'll have another sign up link just like they did before so you can get the deal firsthand and act if it is worthwhile to you.

    Twares were on twitter .... they weren't emailed out like the e-fare 'specials' used to be.

    If we have a master UA twares thread, then we can be notified via email when someone makes a post. Sometimes, twares would only be good for a few hours(Hawaii flights), sometimes a coupl days(SYD flights).

    There were some occasional Twares last year that interested me but just didn't fit my availability. Would be nice to see them come out with some again and hopefully snag a good deal. I think a thread for Twares deals would be good.

    The only problem with subscribing to UA's Twitter feed (and I do subscribe) is all the retweets of useless junk.... thank-yous for finding Aunt Edna's luggage, etc...do I really care? I sometimes wouldn't open a text from them that announced a Tware, just because I'd already had half a dozen junk texts the hour before, so I ignored it.
