TwestivalSG: Tweet. Meet. Give.

Did you go for TwestivalSG yesterday?. It was probably Singapore’s biggest tweetup ever. Even people who are not on Twitter turned up for the event too.

If you have no idea what a Twestival is, no worries. I will give you a brief overview. For starters, tweeples (people who tweet), don’t hide behind a computer or an iPhone all day long just to tweet. Like the motto of TwestivalSG, we tweet, we meet and we give.

Every year on the 25th of March, people in hundreds of cities around the world will come together offline to rally around the important cause of Education by hosting local events to have fun and create awareness.  Twestival™ (or Twitter Festival) uses social media for social good.  All of the local events are organized 100% by volunteers and 100% of all ticket sales and donations go direct to projects.

Well, I volunteered for this event. So when the organiser, Mike Foong, asked me what I wanted to volunteer for, I immediately signed up for, what else?. Registration. I figured, if I wanted to meet people, plonking myself down at the registration table was the best way to do it. And i did, I finally met tweeps like @patlaw , @clicktokill , @litford, just to name a few.

So, I was the official ‘door bitch’ with @daphnemaia. Enjoy the photos. Taken by the pros, @inrsoul and @dazzachazza.

@angelsherwin was paid to strip, all in the name of charity

but he chicken out and did a dance instead. Nonetheless, many tweeples still donated.

And at the end of it all, I was high and satisfied.

Have you donated yet? 🙂
