I shot and edited this video of the Austin Twestival at Ace’s Lounge on 6th St. Part of the worldwide Twestival event that took place in over 200 cities on February 12th, 2009. The name Twestival comes from the words Twitter and Festival. This event was conceived and promoted through Twitter. It was, as my friend @daveiam like to say, social media for social good. Worldwide, the Twestival raised over 250K for Charity: Water. That money will bring access to clean water to over 17,000 who currently drink water filled with parasites and mud.
