Twitter Ye Not?


The 2011 edition of Brussels Twitter Festival (Twestival) features a social networking fair as well as a party night.

The annual global event, which takes place in more than 40 countries around the world will this year feature local charities, with Europe’s Children Our Concern being the choice for Brussels. The Belgium-based charity helps children with learning difficulties.

The social networking fair in the afternoon at Radisson Royal Blu Hotel is a new addition to the Brussels “twestival”. It will feature presentations from speakers, live streaming across the world, all-area wi-fi access, stands for businesses and organizations and networking bar.

Following the fair, which runs from 3-7.30pm, other events will occur at new The Six Nations pub and Bar Rooster’s both in the centre of the city.

Six Nations will offer snacks and offer a free glass of beer or wine. The snacks and drinks require Twestival goers to buy tickets which will cost €5. Ticket holders are invited across the street to Bar Rooster’s, which will offer a free cocktail plus a DJ.

“With the help of our sponsors and the three fantastic venues we’re confident of pulling off three cracking events, one after the other. On top of this, parts of the day will be streamed live around the world,” said Twestival co-ordinator Tony Mallett.

Quite what the late great comic Frankie Howerd (pictured) would say is beyond Together‘s collective wit and wisdom.
