Twestival Brisbane

Joining together like-minded folk, Twitter has created unique online communities around the world. In September last year, a Twitter community in London decided to come out from behind the web interface to meet and socialise face-to-face, in order to network and raise money for a local homeless charity.

The move has sparked a worldwide Twitter phenomenon, where Twitter communities have been inspired to come together in the name of charity and goodwill.

Brisbane Twestival is currently seeking a venue, sponsors, bands, entertainment, artists, stalls, web masters, stage managers, admin and general awesomeness for the September event. Your host for Brisbane Local is NicoleJensen and I have jumped at the chance to be on the committee as well.

I'll keep you posted as the gig gets up and running.

hey mishy... i actually attended the first ever tweetup here in Dubai. It was quite odd!! We had these twitter name badges and all evening long everyone just kept staring at everyones chest and kept saying things like 'i'll follow you if you follow me' - laughter followed.


guess they limited their chats to 140 character small talk! and share http links! :P
