Beirut and Amman Coming Together for Twestival 2010!

Posted on: March 24, 2010


What is Twestival™?

On Thursday 25 March 2010, 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

In the Levant region, Beirut and Amman supported by Queen Rania will be taking part in this global initiative, leveraging the fact that they are both one of the most active Arab countries on Twitter and have done a great job in pulling a successful local Twestival in September 2009.

The Lebanese and Jordanian joint Twestival will take place at the ArabNet conference, the premiere international conference about the web industry that is being staged on that same day in Beirut. Since most of the active “tweeps” in both countries will be attending the conference, it was decided to create a joint Twestival on the first day of the conference, which happens to be on March 25th , coinciding with the Global Twestival.

On March 25, the online community of the world will gather offline to support this very important cause. Join us and let’s together create a difference and help make this world a better place. The more we are, the louder we can echo our Lebanese and Jordanian voices around the world, and the greater the impact we can achieve.
