Twitter Meetup with a Heart

February 4, 2009

Building on a great community showing at Barcamp, the Charlotte Social Media crowd is hopping with happenings. The next of which is a great event for a great cause.


Twestival is a global city-by-city tweetup aiming to bring together social media enthusiasts to raise money for a great cause, charity : water. Each city’s event is run by local volunteers with all proceeds going directly to charity, to help provide wells and clean drinking water to the world. How are they organizing such an effort? WordPress of course. The Twestival website, city sites (including Charlotte), and development blog are all being run on WordPress Mu.

Give some to this great cause by attending the Charlotte Twestival event next Thursday, Feb. 12th. Buy your tickets now (all proceeds go to charity : water) as cheaper tickets will not last long. Spend as little as $5 or as much as $100, whatever is within your budget. They are also looking for sponsors of $300 or more in order to help reach the goal of raising $5,000.
