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.
