I want to set up a twitter account to get the word out about a bad experience we had with a hotel.

I set up the account.  

Now what to get people to see my account / tweets?

Within hours of the event, you read in the media about people setting up goof twitter accounts for things like Angelina's leg, the empty chair that Clint Eastwood talked to, etc.

How did they get found so fast?

thanks!

1) You have to follow people or pay Twitter to promote your account.  The former is slower, the latter is quicker.

2) You have to tweet regularly and build up a history that Twitter can expose via search and algorithms.

If people find you interesting, they will follow back and then you can engage them in conversation.  That's when your message will be spread.

However, as a person creating an account just to complain about something...get ready to get ignored.

oh, you say to follow people - in the hopes they follow me?  or following lots of people helps with the algorithms?

Both.  The etiquette on Twitter is to follow back when followed, so one way to increase followers is follow people relevant to your interests.  Some will follow back.
