Tweet. Meet. Give.

On February12,  2009 100+ 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.

NYC Twestival 2009 is just under three weeks away!

If you’ve been a Twitter user for a while, you’ve probably heard about “tweetups,” real-life meetups organized through Twitter’s community platform. The NYC Twestival 2009 is like a tweetup with the aim of social change and fundraising.

The NYC Twestival 2009 is like a charity event 2.0.  There’s no three-digit ticket price, no black-tie dress code ( I might wear my tux because I look adorkable in it).  Tickets will be for sale (at an incredibly reasonable price!) very shortly and I’ll post an update as soon as I have more information and you can always follow me on twitter @AdorkableGeek or use he link below.

Hope to see you on Feb 12, 2009!

UPDATE: 1/26/2009 — When NYC Twestival was in its first planning phases a few weeks ago, the organizers were thinking about finding a venue for about 300 people. Now it’s starting to push closer to 1,000. Very soon there will be details available about tickets, a venue, sponsors, and entertainment.

UPDATE: 1/27/2009 — Venue for NYC Twestival announced!

530 West 28th St. (between 10th and 11th Avenues)
New York, NY 10001

open bar from 7:30 to 9, a short presentation from charity:water, live music, and some special guests.
