What is a Twestival? A Twestival, brings together Twitter users in local communities to both network and support a charitable cause. Washington, DC & Chicago are among some of the marquee cities in the United States for Twestival and is expecting one of the largest turnouts at its event on Thursday, February 12th, 2009.
In case you missed it, on February 12th, 2009 over 120 cities around the world will be hosting a unique event to raise money for Charity:Water, a non profit organization bringing clean, safe drinking water to people in developing nations by funding sustainable clean water solutions in areas of greatest need. I love water, especially clean water, so I give Twestival my full support.
You find your local Twestivals online here but here is the signup for Chicago and D:
All proceeds go to charity of course. Oh and check out the pre-roll video that Genius Rocket, a crowdsouring content marketplace, had created for the event (below).
