The power of social media will be highlighted in the festival, which is held for a charity cause every year. Twestival 2011, Kochi has already collected Rs. 50,000 through its online campaign alone and the proceeds will go to Adarsh charitable Trust, which strives for the rehabilitation of differently- abled children. Twitter is a powerful communicative tool and a public forum for causes and a brilliant opportunity to meet like minded people and to enhance your social and friends circle.
With the ever increasing number of Indians who use twitter to exchange ideas and communicate, the importance of festivals like Twestival is on the rise. Instead of a mere tool for micro blogging, twitter has evolved to be a perfect platform for responsible social messages and causes. The main attraction of today’s event is the music shows by the bands KAAV and Frozen Flames in addition to fun events and games. So make sure that your opinion is heard all over the world by the active participation in this unique festival in Kochi, which is a great place to see people and to be seen!
