Twitter may be time consuming, but it may soon be well worth any savvy flyer's while. United Airlines and Jet Blue are taking notice of the Internet update-obsessed and rewarding them with tempting deals, many of which are exclusive to the social networking and mini-blog site. While following United Airlines' twares, or Jet Blue's cheeps, tweeters receive hot prices (some one-way flights have been advertised for under $10 bucks) that often leave the screen faster than a plane has liftoff. In fact, in many cases, fares are only available for as little as an hour or two.

Meant to serve as an incentive to their already abundant following, and lure new members in (United has 21,000 tweeters and Jet Blue has 988,000), the fares are targeted at a fast-paced audience ready to travel at a moment's notice. Flights are limited to specific cities and last-minute dates, so save some sick days, keep a suitcase packed, and await your impromptu getaway.
