  • Fantastic compilation Shashank! I especially loved the use of the flash mob in Singapore. Overall, however, the best takeaway from this great share is the versatility of social media and airports. You lend an excellent snapshot to the timid airport not yet sure of how social media can be a game changer. Retweet worthy for sure!
