Twestival – Day of the Twitter Festival

So, the day is finally here, Twestival 2009!

Today is in aid of the charity charity: water and the talk on the tweet is that over $1 million is to be raised.

I’ve also read today that the BBC and Sky News are going to be covering the London Twestival, so Twitter is really making it mainstream!

My home city of Manchester is hosting their event at the Living Room and there seems to be a great buzz going round, as well as what should be a fantastic event, there are the following prizes to be won in the charity auction:

Twestival meet ups for charity

twestival-logo1On 12th February 2009, there is a worldwide “Tweetup” to raise money and awareness for charity: water.

Twestival is organised by volunteers around the globe to raise moneyy for charity:water, over 100 cities worldwide will be hosting an event, from London to San Francisco.

The Tweetathon will happen over a 24 hour period and will bring tweeters from around the world together. Twestival began over a year ago in a one-off event in London but the power of Twitter enabled the main 40 cities to organise their events in less than 24 hours.

This should be one hell of a tweetup -I might be at the London or Manchester event so maybe see you there!

Here is the latest list:
