Twestival 2009

It was great being on the Tube yesterday to see
Twestival on the front cover of Metro. In a nutshell Twestival was a big global party for people who Twitter, set up to raise money for Charity : Water.

Twestival Metro Front Cover

Over 200 cities took part and I'm pleased to say that was one of the few major tech / Web 2.0'ie events that was set up from London.

Loads and loads of people helped to put the event together, but Amanda Rose deserves extra special kudos for hardly getting any sleep & making sure it went truly global.

She is a lovely understated person too and hopefully we be able to sleep soundly again.

A number of you who read this blog were at the London event last night, so it was great to meet many of you in the flesh, croak at you (as I've almost lost my voice) & put some faces to the avatars. Even if some of the faces were a little err.. peculiar

The rest of my photos from London Twestival are here, but there will be gazillions of Twestival pictures from around the world to see too.
