Twestival

I haven’t blogged in the last week because most of my spare moments have been spent preparing for the Sydney Twestival (I blogged about this back in February). I was helping with media, but like all volunteer efforts, you need to pitch in with whatever on the night. I’m glad that there were other volunteers a whole lot more resourceful and dedicated than I was, too.

The night was a whole lot of fun. I would have liked more people there, but as the media and PR person I can only point at myself. Still, we raised as much money as last year, and Twestival globally has collected more money than last year. That’s a good thing, because the charity we Twitter folk were raising for – Concern Worldwide – does really good work.

If you want to know more about Twestival, which is now an annual global Twitter event, and how to join – or start! – a Twestival near you, click here.
