Weather on demand on Twitter

I have been following SunDC and Wx_DC to get the weather on Twitter for the DC area. I always thought it would be nice to have weather on demand on Twitter

I saw a Tweet from DrThomasHo

"you can now get temperature in Fahrenheit from @isitniceoutside by appending (f) after postal code

@isitniceoutside is developed by @howicode. The advantage I see is that you can get weather on demand.

How to start:

a) Follow @isitniceoutside on Twitter

b) @isitniceoutside will start following you back.

c) To get weather send a DM example : d isitiniceoutside 20171(f)

d) If you want to get the weather in Celcius then you don;t have to out the (f) at the end.

So now when you want the weather use Twitter. Some of the questions I have for @howicode are :

What is the source of this weather info?

How often is it updated?

From Washington DC, Emirates is an outlier, it flies in the morning at 10.55 from Washington Dulles Airport (IAD) and reaches Dubai at around 8.30 a.m. Other flights, Etihad, Qatar and flights with European stopovers take off after 9 p.m at night.
I love this timing but it does cause a disagreement in my house. My wife prefers to fly Eithad due to the timings. My wife's viewpoint is that it is difficult to sleep on the Emirates flight since it starts in the morning. I enjoy the morning flight. My game plan is to sleep less for a few days to my Emirates flight. Once on the flight, I divide …

How to Contact TSA on Social Media

I was very impressed at how easy TSA made it for me to write this post. As a best practice all organizations should have a social page where they list all the places your audience can contact you.

Here is TSA's Social Page
