For The Travel Data Nerd in You: The New SkiftStats Twitter Feed

Yesterday we launched a new Twitter account, SkiftStats, a collection of daily travel stats, charts, and curio, curated by Skift’s editors.

There are lots of numbers to play with. Travel is the world’s largest industry, with a $7 trillion contribution to GDP and 260 million jobs.

SkiftStats will dig deep in to those numbers, as well as surveys, reports, polls, and data from everyone from travel brands trying to explain user engagement to global NGOs telling us how the world is traveling.

We’ll link to sources and their Twitter accounts, when relevant.

And while our Daily Travel Stats won’t always be tied to a story we’ve done, often they’ll pick up on a particular data point that could be elaborated a bit more:
