#twestivalTO 2011 – tweet. meet. give.

This photo means something really special to me. It reminds me how much I, we have grown and changed over the past couple years.

Erin, Satish & I (below)  were on an aweosme team that came together in Jan. 2009 to create the first big Twitter event Toronto ever had. Twitter was slowly catching on at the time and the event was part of a global thing called Twestival.

Last night, Twestival 2011 took place and it was awesome. It was a totally new team of people who took the initiative to create the event and I was proud and happy to be there.

Twestival OG organizer group hug, my happy moment of the night.

The first Twestival was at CiRCA and we donated to charity:water. Remember that place? My sis was there, she was a Raptors girl back then. She’s the blonde if you don’t already know/can’t tell.

Another time we had Twestival at Tryst in the club district.


See all the great pix Erin Leydon took last night here on flickr.


My Olympus pix were not as great. I’m not familiar with the camera yet and had some issues. I’m used to having a point & shoot. This is me frustrated, haha.

Don’t judge me, ok, judge me. I don’t care! Lady Blogga raaaaaaaaaa! #pawsup

Great night, great people, great cause.  Next week is fashion week and there’s heaps of things going on. Get yourself a ticket for our Japan fundraiser Thurday at Tattoo Rock Parlour, it’s gonna be a great night. You don’t wanna miss it. All funds raised go directly to Red Cross. There’s heaps of goodies being raffled off, couple totally rad DJ’s, and babes.

    Hey girl,

    Aw I LOVE the photos of us. I totally agree with you – thinking about the first Twestival makes me so proud of how far we’ve all come. I meet new people every week (and I know you do too), but it’s nice to know there are a few who have come along for the whole ride. Twestival was such a special experience (all three times) and I’m so happy it was a success even after we moved on.

    Couldn’t be more proud of you and all you’ve accomplished – and so happy you’re my friend!

    ill learn you the pen. lesson one: dont let some french frog run up the stairs in a forest with it and the lense extended. be wary of the strap if you use it mine slipped out and when the french moron ran it came undone from around his neck. other than that, gorgeous photos obviously.
