Follow the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel on Twitter

Cape Charles, VA – In an effort to keep its travelers informed of up-to-date traffic and weather conditions on the facility, the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel has joined Twitter. Twitter is an online social networking and microblogging service that enables users to send and read short text-based messages known as “tweets.” Though the site will not be monitored 24/7, the CBBT plans to use this social application to disseminate current information regarding wind restrictions, potential delays, or other incidents that may impact travelers.

Twitter users may begin to follow the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel on Twitter via the Twitter handle @FollowTheGulls. Customers that don’t want to create a Twitter account can still receive the CBBT’s tweets as text messages by using Twitter’s FAST FOLLOW service. To use FAST FOLLOW, text Follow followthegulls to 40404. Standard text message rates do apply. For more information on using FAST FOLLOW, please click here.

Here’s How It Works: 
Already a Twitter user? Click here to follow the CBBT @FollowTheGulls! Be sure to “turn on mobile notifications” to receive text messages from this Twitter handle directly on your phone. This will give you immediate notification whenever we tweet about our wind restrictions, delays, or other incidents.

Not a Twitter user? That’s OK! You can still receive mobile text messages by using a feature called FAST FOLLOW! Simply text Follow followthegulls to 40404. From there, you will begin to receive any CBBT updates via text message. Standard text message rates do apply.
