The Twitter bug has overtaken Kochi today with tweeples from all over Kerala swooping into Somewhere Else Cafe in Kadavanthara, this evening, the 25th of March 2010. So if you’re an avid tweeter you should make it to Cochin Twestival and have a Tweetup which is a festival with a DJ and even a stand-up comedy act to enjoy.
Twestival is a one-of-a-kind charity event which will help raise funds and create awareness for supporting the education of underprivileged children across the globe, including India in 2010.
The Cochin Twestival has its heart in the right place and the profit from the sale of T-shirts will go to Concern Worldwide, an international nonprofit and humanitarian organization supporting education projects for underprivileged and neglected children. This what the organisers have to say on the website:
Cochin Twestival has grown from just an idea to something more in the past few days. From just a handful of volunteers, the people of Kerala have joined in to volunteer help and make it a huge success.
The enterprising team of Cochin Twestival include Kenney Jacob(@kenneyjacob), Andrine Mendez @Andrine_Mendez), Binny VA(@binnyva), Ivin Gancius,( @ivan457), Thariq CP (@thariqcp ), Jayadeep Gilroy(@jAyaDEEpGiLrOY), Ranjith K Avarachan, aka @zeqox , Arun Sadanand, (@sadu_arun), Ashwin, (@4sHwiN), Cijo Abraham Mani( @cijoaj2003) Sharat Sreenivas-(I_Sharat) Nitin @hollowmaniac and Sajan Mani ( @vmsajan).
Archana Kavi of Neelathamara fame is the celebrity guest slated for the Twestival and the venue, Somewhere Else Cafe is the only free Wi-fi cafe in all of Kochi and has provided free welcome drinks.
From our team at KarmaKerala.com we wish Cochin Twestival all the best and hope that this becomes a regular event and more and more tweeples join in and help make a difference. With education let there be light and let’s help educate a new generation of people with this effort.
Happy tweeting and enjoy your Twestival and make a difference.
