February 11 2009
As some of you know, I am big fan and user of Twitter. Not sure what twitter is yet, check this little video on Twitter. Anyway, I have great conversations with people on twitter from all over Milwaukee and the world. Twitter is an amazing community and this is where Twestival comes in. On 12 February 2009 175+ cities around the world will be hosting Twestivals which bring together Twitter communities for an evening of fun and to raise money and awareness for charity: water. The Twestival is organized 100% by volunteers in cities around the world and 100% of the money raised from these events will go directly to support charity: water projects.
One of those 175+ cities hosting a Twestival will be Milwaukee. The Milwaukee Twestival will be held at the the Jackalope Lounj at the Wicked Hop in the 3rd Ward from 8pm-until. There will be music by Milwaukee artist Micha Olsan and DJ sets by Kid Millions and RadioMilwaukee's DJ Tarik. Tickets, which are $10 donation at the door, are available at the Wicked Hop on the night of the event and online for $5 HERE, as well as links to securely donate any amount you’d like. The goal of the Milwaukee Twestival is to raise up to $4,000 USD, which is the price of one water well in central Africa. For more information visit Milwaukee.Twestival.com.
Ryan Thompson, Director of GreenerMilwaukee.com and organizer for the Milwaukee Twestival will be stopping by the studio for interview around 3pm.
