Two weeks ago Tweeters from 202 cities all over the world got together for an evening of fun and to raise money and awareness for charity: water.
So far more than $250,000 have been collected for the cause, and the organizers are still counting. Get the latest update on the Twestival site.
Zendesk was a happy drinks sponsor for the Twestivals in Auckland, Melbourne, Hong Kong, Copenhagen and Boston. The twestivals in Copenhagen and Boston collected $2,600 and $4,000 respectively.
Our friends in Melbourne have suggested donating proceeds from the Melbourne leg of the Twestival to the Red Cross Victorian Bushfire Appeal, following the devastating bushfires that have swiped the region recently.
