I haven’t started twittering yet but I’m sure I’ll get sucked in eventually.
If you don’t know, Twitter is a web site that allows users to answer the question “What are you doing” and follow other users who seem interesting, or have related professions and hobbies. Networks build up quickly and twittering (being active on Twitter) takes very little time, as you are limited to 140 characters!
It can be quite useful but unfortunately there’s a lot of useless messages like ‘I’m standing at the bus stop and its freezing cold’ or ‘I just saw Stephen Fry going into Marks and Spencers’.
Anyway, on Thursday 12 February 2009 there’s a global twitter festival. Twitter + festival = Twestival
It sounds like fun, they need more things for the auction and sponsorship. Tickets are available and free – donations on the door preferred.
Over 130 cities worldwide will be hosting a twestival at the same time, on the same day making it a truly global event.
Liverpool Twestival is taking place on Thursday 12th Feb at Leaf Tea Shop and Bar from 18.00 to late. Bands confirmed so far are The Lapis, Sparkwood & 21 and Pencil In and a grand prize auction.
The organisers are looking for donations of prizes to the auction, as well as sponsorship for the event, which is raising money solely for Charity:Water, a global charity that aims to get clean water to people across the globe, the fundraising target is £2000 which will buy a well.
