Sydney Twestival 2011

I was one of the volunteer organisers of the Sydney Twestival last year. Twestival 2011 was a couple of nights ago, and while I didn’t volunteer this year I did buy a ticket and go along to the Sydney event.

It was a great event. There were obviously folks with much more PR experience involved this time around: the place was packed. It was held in the courtyard at the Beresford Hotel in Surry Hills, and the buzz was genuine. It was difficult to move without bumping into folks, there were several raffles and auctions, and they raised what appeared to be lots of money for kids’ cancer charity Redkite.

Well done, folks. The night was further proof that social media is one more excellent way to get folks together to help out a worthy cause.

I even met some cool new folks, and managed to get into a gig later in the night.
